SHE HOWLS SURVIVAL KIT
To survive as a creative, as a writer in a world where you might not see your face represented or you get raised eyebrows when you declare ‘I am a writer’ or a poet or an essayist, in a world where the literati is made up of white, middle class men, where the gates will be kept firmly shut against you lest you dare enter, where your friends, relatives, colleagues or teachers tell you to ‘geta proper job’, where rejection can flood acceptance, a world where you spend hours and hours reading, making notes, scribbling in bus shelters, at 5am or late in to the night without the foggiest idea where this will all lead and have 3am panic attacks ‘ what am i doing with my life?' attacks, when the bank balance is dwindling and you’re balancing work, family and writing, when the funding doesn’t come through, when somebody steals your ideas claiming them as your own, when your fingers, wrists, arms ache from scribbling...
You need a Survival Kit. With emergency balms, salves and preventative medicino too. A kit with jadoo and genies to restore your creative heart when broken and to keep you going when you’re up against the granite face.
