Powerful, urgent, lyrical and searingly honest, Imogen's poems demand to be heard” - Kate Mosse, international bestselling author.

In 2020 Imogen was published in the photography book and poetry anthology Hidden in Chaos by Chris Holmes and Trope, and in 2022 Imogen's play ; (pause before continuing) was long-listed for The RSC's 27 Plays Award.
 

Imogen’s work as a playwright, poet and spoken word artist is auto-fictional. Their writing is often female-led or queer-centric, exploring the spaces within gender & sexual identity, resilience & the healing of trauma, and the nature of eros, intimacy & connection.
