Becky Cherriman is a commissioned writer, creative writing facilitator and prize-winning performer based in Leeds. Her work is informed by the belief that not only do writing and the spoken word help us to make sense of the world and our place in it but that they provide us with the tools to transform our lives.
Her writing has been published by Bloodaxe, Mslexia, New Walk, Envoi, Mother's Milk; in Poets For Corbyn; on umbrellas and on the walls of a recording studio. She has had pieces commissioned by The Hepworth Wakefield, The Rotunda Museum, Humbermouth Literature Festival, Imove and Grassington Festival. In 2015, her poem 'Austerity' was translated into Italian by Francesca Spinelli and printed in the socialist magazine, Internazionale.
Her pamphlet Echoloaction was published by Mother's Milk Books (2106).
