Imogen has been inspired by words for as long as she can remember. She started writing poetry whilst still at junior school and began acting soon after. Influenced by the rawness of performance poetry and her experiences as a young woman, she began performing her writing just six months ago, and since then has shared her work in a number of venues across Bristol and the South West. Having developed from a background in theatre, she draws on her experiences in storytelling and playwriting to create a strong blend of engaging performance and compelling language. Whether humorous or cuttingly serious, Imogen’s work always aims to reveal something about the human condition; transcending everyday experiences to lay bare what it means to be human and to be treated inhumanely.
