Dr Bev Morris
Inspired by the voices of extraordinary people in extreme situations, Bev writes through listening to stories told by survivors. From women survivors of abuse to soldiers at war, she is drawn to experiences that question the very nature of humans. She seeks out the fragments of trauma that lodge themselves deep inside ordinary people, changing them forever, sometimes for the better. Often for the worse.
Bev’s work itself is created in fragments; poems, flash fiction, haiku, micro-scripts. She looks to give a space to unheard voices, even when these voices falter or scream.
Bev’s work is published by the award-winning Beautiful Dragons (Ragged Rocks, Running Rascals, Bloody Amazing, Lighting Out, Watch the Birdie, Noble Dissent), Retreat West (The Perfect Word), Writers Online (The Show at the End of the Pier) and AMED (The Fifth Element). Her plays (Vagina Blogs, and 9 Lives, 8 Deaths) have been performed by Contexture Theatre.
She mentors other writers and storytellers to find their own voice and will be running memoir writing workshops for the Herts Book Festival 2022.
