Rahima Fitzwilliam Hall

I have been playing with live poetry, penned poetry and short stories since way back in 2006 and iIm currently undertaking a self-directed nose dive into the world of becoming a 'professional' writer.

My work has previously been described as enigmatic, perceptive and powerfully naive - in no particular order.

Some of my stories and poems gently prod at human desires, natures relationship with humans, and the beauty and humor in mundane tasks.

My own pursuit of an honest discourse, along with a dyslexic fascination for language and speech have lead me to explore language as sound rather then story in some of my work.

I have learned a lot from short courses with the Arvon Foundation and Anne Aylors fiction workshops.
The latter of which has given birth to the starts of a novel set in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where I spent my childhood years.
