Laura Sansom A poet and writer of many other things


I compiled many of my poems into the first collection titled “Between devils and goalposts”  – “About the choices we have to make as we are growing up….Do we let the little devils distract us?” This features on the Lulu self-publishing site alongside another collection titled “Exit the nunnery”  – “All that stuff, even the good girls have to contend with.”

“Rubber faces and animal images” by L Sansom and CJ walls – “Sticks and stones may break my bones but we carried on writing the anthology anyway”. This anthology on the theme of bullying and the site was created through Yola. There is a plan to take this particular project into schools and make it more of a campaign about bullying and its effects.

I have had some experience of performance poetry as with the Metroland poets we presented work at High Wycombe / Woburn festival as well as the local publicised launch of the self-published book “Lines from Metroland”.

I am also part of social media network and some writing forums.  This includes such things as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
My freelancing project has, and always will, include poetry but I digress also in article writing, flash fiction and short story writing as well as a lean towards business content writing.

Pitch to publishers and festival organisers:
As a poet, writer and reviewer I have had work published in various formats and both in the U.K and U.S. I started freelancing at the same time and write in many genres and in many styles.  Previous work has been content writing, articles for the internet, blog posts, short stories / flash fiction and other things such as recipe and foodie related items and fillers. Most recent work was an article published for theintern247 website and regular postings on O-Posts website and ap2hyc.

I manage my own author / writer networking and social platform and manage a blog too as well as the usual Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
My current interests are in drama, film, T.V drama, Sci-fi and theatre as well as a casual interest in fashion, music, photography and crafts.
I have attended many a networking event and this year attended Henley on Thames literary festival. I have previously attended London book fair, London film and comic con, Soho create and more

Current creative on-going projects awaiting confirmation / publication are novels, scripts, third poetry anthology, children’s story book and comic strip. Also some craft and photography work.
