Waterstones Says

Accessible and full of heart, Leeanne’s searing poetry forms a restless, remarkable meditation on childhood trauma and mental health that speaks profoundly to a collective sense of survival and regeneration.

Shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2021

Think of me as a piece of charred wood. - Andreena Leeanne

There is strong correlation between childhood trauma and mental health issues. I suffer with PTSD and depression, and use poetry to write honestly about the multitude of issues I have experienced in my 39 years. I have found writing to be hugely therapeutic. While I recognize the value of professional therapy, my poetry has helped me to come to terms with some of these issues.

If they're not already doing so, I hope to inspire the readers of this book to speak and write their truth. We don’t have to be qualified writers to write down how we feel – honesty is the only qualification for this kind of work – and we don’t have to share it unless we want to.

This collection is called Charred. Think of a piece of wood that has been exposed to the flames. You may think of it as damaged – and it’s true it has been burnt and blackened – but it is still resilient, and much stronger after going through this process.
