Poet Pauline has been sharing her wonderful words throughout lockdown, a new passion that we’re so pleased she discovered– because she’s fantastic at it! She tells the stories of her experiences as a trans woman, of lockdown, and of our place: Manchester. Pauline has lived all over Europe, spending many years in the Netherlands before returning to Manchester. She has a son, who she’s incredibly proud of. When you speak to Pauline, she’s always chocka-block with wisdom and advice and perfect for a good deep chat.
Wordsmith and Worldweaver, Pauline
