Speaker. Educator. Performance Poet. Comedy Writer. Script Writer.
I’m Jenny, a Speaker, Educator, Poet and Writer from Salford.
Jenny’s truthful wit mirrors today’s society with a stab of observational humour
“I identify as an apostrophe because I’m only small, up in the air, everyone gets me wrong and at times I’m possessive.”
Jenny is an award winner, in 2015 she won 1st place in ‘Venture First’ with Manchester Business School, winning £10k to set up her idea of poetry in prisons through a CIC. She did this for 4 years and now has developed this concept across NW Prisons as a freelancer.
Jenny’s popular performance poem ‘My Ex is Around The Corner’ made into a song.
Composed and Sung by Amy Webber
