I am a poet and playwright from the West Midlands. Currently, I am working towards an English Literature and Creative Writing degree at the University of Huddersfield.
I've been published in several anthologies, websites and magazine and have won a few awards for my work. I've also worked with a number of arts and charity organisations to create theatre, performance poetry and multi-disciplinary exhibitions.
My work mainly consist of social commentary and satire. As a proud feminist and huge supporter of equality for EVERYONE, I really hope that some day my work can influence change. Even something as small as making someone reconsider their opinions is an amazing thing to achieve, so fingers crossed!
You can find a lot of my work (along with some rather colourful rants) at laurenebanks.wordpress.com or if you feel the uncontrollable urge to know more about me and my life you can follow me on twitter @LaurenEbanks95 or on Tumblr @glitterypumpkin..
