An Essex writer, Karen Hayward, has been exploring the world through poetry for over eight years. With a strong presence across social media platforms and within the poetry communities Karen has developed a powerful voice within her writing. Having previously owned a large, active poetry community she has acquired a global depth of knowledge that enriches her English degree and life experience. An avid believer that boundaries are built to be climbed, Karen is continuously looking for fresh, eclectic ways to explore the intrinsic truths of the experience of being human in the modern world. Aside from writing Karen enjoys misty mornings, photography, crafting with her hands, being bare foot, a fierce tide and forgotten tales of mythology.
