Me, Myself and I
I'm Katie, the author and creator of the I Am Not A Poet blog and website, originally to live as an online portfolio of my poems and prose, has now become a weekly blog and poetry archive.
Early in my education I was interested in the arts which lead to me studying graphics through school and then animation at college. After over three years, including one year at University, of doing animation I changed course, to my true passion; writing.
Within my lifetime I have experienced several milestones and my favourite way of expressing these is by writing them down.
Writing about my life and its events in a funny and relatable way has always been a passion of mine, and a blog seems the best way to get my story across. Although I try to keep this lifestyle blog as light-hearted as possible, a big part of my life is my struggles with mental health and writing down advice and experiences I've had.
As well as discussing mental health, I also have dyslexia. Many people told me that I would never pass a writing course with this limitation, especially with reading being my biggest problem. However, I chose to prove them wrong and write everyday, both for my website and myself.
Never let anyone tell you that you won't be able to do something, they're just jealous of your bravery.
If you have any questions, queiries or thoughts please, don't hesitate to conatct me.
