BioHi I'm Amy, I've been running the Swinburne poetry club for 2 and a half years now and I was inspired to do that by my love of poetry and to help inspire others to write and create in a safe space. It's been really rewarding for me to hear people grow as poets and watch them develop their own individual writing style. Poetry for me was at first an escapism, a way to express internal pain but I've learnt that it can be beautiful in all forms of emotions. I love the rawness that it can express and seeing the sides of people you would not normally see if not for poetry or writing in general.
