About

Currently I am struggling to meet my housing costs and heat & lighting costs, and am relying on Food Bank supplies. I am facing eviction on a regular basis. At this stressful time for everyone this has added to my clinical depression and anxiety issues. I am attempting to help myself by creating a new arts & poetry online magazine. I am also trying to write my writers biography, I am 61 years of age and my book would run from 1959 to 2020, a momentous time, as a political activist in the 1980's and active cultural worker through the 1990's and a full time carer for two invalid parents. However living on Universal credit means i cannot concentrate on my creative writing or utilize my degree which i studied as a mature student, graduating last year. Unfortunately i have no family to give a helping hand. I would appreciate any financial help you can offer.
