Ballet dancer and author Amelie Ash is from Leicestershire. Her debut anthology ‘Epiphany’ documents her battle with anorexia. Amelie has also had work published in ‘Poetry Rivals 2012’ and ‘Women Writers of the Year 2015’.
“This poetry is quite simply, breathtaking. Amelie Ash speaks to us with unflinching honesty about horrifying experiences, and yet through this she brings us to a greater appreciation of the beauty of overcoming. Even when confronting the darkest despair, the poetry is driven by the restless energy of an unconquerable spirit. Ash has an exceptional ear for rhythm and phonology, giving the poems an extraordinary lyrical beauty. Songs of pain, songs of hope, songs of resilience, these poems are an extraordinary witness to one young woman’s extraordinary courage.” – Sarah Parkin
