I’m Christine, poet, performer, facilitator, teacher – and openly obsessed with Anne Lister.
I love writing – falling into a poem, living in two worlds. Creating.
Anne Lister has been in my life since 2014. The ‘how’s’ and ‘why’s’ don’t always have answers. Some things just are.
I’ve spent the last 4 years writing Women. And I can’t wait to bring you this poetry collection based on Anne Lister and all of her lovers. It’s written for page and stage – read it and watch it performed!
Watch premier performance of Women at ALBW 2022 here.
Let’s be like Anne and write. We can all write – yes, you, me, everybody. Join me on an Anne Lister workshop. Sometimes we just need someone to place a pencil in our hand.

I’m excited about making writing accessible to all. I love to write and it trills me to bring my latest work, Women, to life on stage.
Having Anne Lister, Ann Walker, and Anne’s previous lovers as the focus of my collection, performances and workshops, is an honour and utterly awesome!

Anne Lister Writing Workshops
There are a few courses to choose from. Each workshop within the course is ‘stand- alone’. You don’t need to attend all the workshops to follow the course (though it would be lovely if you did).
I’m really looking forward to meeting you. And guiding you to create some incredible writing.
