Originally from the Scottish Highlands, El is a poet who is not afraid to excavate the human heart. This year, through her debut poetry collection, The Paper Sky, El celebrates the beauty and heartache of being human. With numerous voices, fictional and actual, El will open your heart and meet you there.
She has become known as ‘The People’s Poet’ as she writes for real people in real times, making poetry accessible to all. “As a poet I don’t want to rant and rave about the issues of the day, but I’d rather focus on nurturing words that will save.” If you are after deep thoughts, wholesome words and plenty of puns, then El is one not to miss!
