Ellie Herda-Grimwood

Ellie Herda-Grimwood studied English Literature and Music at university, followed by a Master’s degree in Film Music and Opera. She attended a one-off poetry class in early 2021 (put on by her workplace) whilst also doing a course of bereavement counselling. The two experiences pleasantly collided, leaving a lasting impact and merging to inspire her first poem ‘God Only Knows the Blend’. She is eternally on a relentless hunt for inner peace and – when not staring wistfully out of windows – can usually be found at the theatre, reading, playing piano, building Lego, watching Judy Garland films or eating pizza. She lives in London with her lovely supportive wife.
