Mitzies Bio

I have written poetry and short prose all my life. I have a BSc in Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Expressive Arts Therapy. I used writing techniques in one-to-one and group therapeutic work. I worked with women experiencing Domestic Abuse and facilitated group work through writing and art with women in refuge. My poetry was first published in A Fistful of Pens: an anthology of poetry and short fiction in 1988. Paula Meehan and Martina Evans have influenced my poetry. Donal Ryan, Nuala O’Connor, and many others have influenced my fiction writing. In 2022 I gained a first-class honours MA in Creative Writing from the University of Limerick. I completed my dissertation through poetry under the supervision of Poet Emily Cullen.
