Gee Middleton 

Gee Middleton is a tender twenty-something living in Cornwall. Interested in how she relates to the world around her, she considers in her work what it means to be human. With an affinity for stars, self-love, and kindness, poetry is her love letter to humanity and her way of exploring her place in the universe.

Megan Lee Yendell 

“While just finishing English and Journalism, I rediscovered poetic hedonism. Life is filled with complexity but words helps us make sense of the punctuated perplexity.”

Alexandra Aerlinn 

Alexandra Aerlinn is based in Cornwall and has been performing for 9 years. Her songs are primarily inspired by the lands and waters of the places with which she feels a spiritual connection, sense of place and heritage. They are based upon contemplative immersion in nature, sacred spaces and dream excursions.
