Jemima Hughes brings you her first autobiographical poetry collection which will sweep you up and drag you through the “mindfield” of the ‘Unorthodox’. Whilst tearing through experiences of abuse and mental health, Jemima leads you into a whirlwind of love and heartbreak, providing a raw and relatable outlet.

Sometimes a tornado can be more beautiful than it is destructive, either way it will keep you gripped.

This is the debut collection from this astonishing new West Midlands poet – bare, moving, powerful.


A multi slam winner and runner up in the 2020 UK Slam! Jemima Hughes is a performance poet who will drag you through the “mindfield” of the unorthodox. Her work emphasises mental health awareness and covers taboo subjects such as sexual violence, mental illness and suicide. Jemima will take you on a journey through her own experiences, providing a relatable outlet and encouraging conversation. Always a gripping performance, she will leave you questioning whether she meant to do that or whether she needs to go and have a lie down. Not for the faint hearted, but always from the heart.
