Welcome! I’m Priyanka, a born and bred queer London gal with a proud British-Indian heritage.

Online, I perform and write poetry as PM — my stage name. Offline, you’ll either find me laying next to a stack of books in bed, or at an open mic night with a good cup of tea permanently glued to my hand. 🍵

poetpri is my home for everything I do – mostly my blog and also my portfolio of poetry and freelance writing.
