My name’s Cathryn Goddard. I’m a copywriter and events manager based in Croydon. I have written articles for female-based platforms womantowoman.org and TheCWord around issues that affect women from the femicide in Turkey to the social importance of Ladies’ bathrooms. In 2020, I won the Jane Austen Literary Foundation prize for a short fiction piece focused on organ donation. I’m currently writing my first novel which focuses on mental health and friendship.
My name’s Shaniqua Benjamin. I’m a spoken word poet, writer and creative workshop facilitator from Croydon. I draw inspiration from my life experiences to create meaningful pieces of writing. I wrote the lyrics for the London Mozart Players’ Anthem for Peace, and wrote and performed a specially commissioned poem for South London’s biggest arts centre, Fairfield Halls. I have also performed at the Thornton Heath Lights Festival, Field Day Festival and as part of Apples & Snakes’ immersive spoken word show, Rallying Cry.
