Myah Jeffers – Poet/ writer/performer
19-year-old English and Creative Writing student at Birmingham City University.
Writing has been the only constant passion throughout my life, which is why after failing to convince myself that I’d be happy as a pretentious barrister (donning that disastrous white wig), I decided to embrace my love for words and pursue a creative career. My poetry and short stories explore personal, social and political themes through spoken word performance and blog entries.
After weeks of actively searching for a Birmingham-based platform for emerging artists to meet and share ideas, I found the Cannon Hill Collective. CHC gave me the opportunity to interact and feel inspired by artists of various disciplines with a mutual love for creativity. I’m looking forward to future collaborations and using the inspirational energy generated by the collective to improve my art form.
