The Girl From Eye
Alright Mush! This blog is about me, Keely Mills who is the girl from Eye. So whats so special about this bumptious lady from the fens?
I write, perform and love poetry and I was born in a flat and beautiful village that the Romans called their ‘little Island’. This landscape and love for it has permeated through all of my poetry and I wanted to dedicate a blog to my poems, the stuff I get up to and also it means I don’t drive myself mad!
I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager as I could not always tell people that ‘I loved them’ or how my parents might be getting on my nerves. As this might end up being embarassing or detrimental to me getting a tea, so I used writing as a way of cathartically releasing the feelings inside. This path has lead me to lots of crossroads, one being a lecturer, then a Poet Laureate for Peterborough and then a creative producer, performer and cultural activist.
People that I am working with, eventhough they are not from Eye.
At the moment I work for Eastern Angles Theatre Co, as their girl in Peterborough and all round project manager, so this blog may burst with theatrical posts too.Check them out at: http://www.easternangles.co.uk/
