Dawn Abigail has been writing poetry for as long as she can remember. Whilst studying at the University of Birmingham her poem “There are Unicorns in Calthorpe Park” was published in Birmingham’s People to People magazine.
This led to the delightfully surreal experience of a Lecturer stopping Dawn in the corridor to ask “was that your unicorn?”.
Dawn has performed her poems in London, Manchester and Birmingham. Her approach is influenced by her previous experience as an actor, improviser and story teller.
More recently, Dawn has been involved in a highly productive collaboration with London based Calligrapher, Gwyneth Hibbett. Art cards featuring the results of this work are on sale at the Artefact café in South Birmingham (www.artefactstirchley.co.uk ).
Examples of Gwyneth’s other work can be seen at www.handdrawnfamilytrees.co.uk.
Dawn is currently working with Gwyneth on a book of light hearted poetry called “Deeply Meaningful Poetry for Very Serious People”, due out in late 2018.
