Hey, I’m Victoria.
I am a British-born Ghanaian poet, writer and filmmaker.
My work has been shortlisted for the Brunel University International African Poetry Prize, featured on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour and in The Poetry Review, and commissioned by the Royal Academy of Arts. I am a Complete Works fellow, and my debut pamphlet, Girl B, edited by Kwame Dawes, is forthcoming (2017).
I am the creative director of MOTHER TONGUES, an Arts Council England -funded exploration of poetry in translation, captured through filmmaking, in partnership with Autograph ABP. I also facilitate creative workshops, and am interested in producing community-centric projects that stretch literature across genres, art forms, and cultures. Roughly once a month, you’ll find me at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road co-curating an event called TCR Poetry.
This is where I record thoughts and what I’m up to, along with words, photography and poesy by myself and other artists I love and support. Stay awhile.
