Laura Kestrel

A West-country girl at heart, the beautiful, sometimes mythical landscape and not-so-beautiful realities of growing up in Cornwall have influenced Laura’s poetry throughout her childhood, as a way to express herself in a way that no other medium quite could. Empowering on both a general, and individual level, she focuses on giving strength to the female voice in society.
