Soft As Sin A Collection of Poems by Dawn Vincent Poet Writer

About Me

Dawn Vincent Writer Poet Portrait

As you may have guessed from where you are, I am Dawn Vincent. Hi! My pronouns are she/they.

I have been a writer since I could hold a pen but I began writing poems in my mid-teens, and performing them in my twenties. Writing has always been how I process, explore and learn, and I hope that never changes.

My poems explore a variety of topics but mental health, body image, and relationships are my core topics. If you enjoy them, please let me know – I love to hear from you.

 

I live in Colchester with my partner Vix and our weird little dog, Jinkx, who is often curled up with me as I write, or nagging for me to stop so she can have her walk. I love colourful things, especially (preferably small-shop or second-hand) clothes, travelling (and yes, I do mean “going on holiday” but typing it as “travelling” to make myself sound cooler, even though I am very partial to a Disney trip. I tell terrible jokes, am terrible at gaming but love it anyway, and I really like different flavours of tea. I’m not perfect and that’s absolutely fine with me.

 

Brains fascinate me, although I am no neuroscientist. I have been dealing with my troublesome brain for my whole life, and in 2022 was diagnosed with ADHD, which was a turning point for me in self-acceptance and understanding. I am currently working on a memoir about this, and studying for my diploma to become a counsellor, hoping to specialise in ADHD.

At points this may mean that I have symptoms of ADHD and mental ill-health and I am a believer in not hiding this; it may not be cool, or social media friendly but I believe it is important. I hope you will stay for the humanity. My favourite people are the ones who are ready to bring a bottle and a sparkly smile but also, if needed, to get serious, boil the kettle and talk it through or distract with silliness.

 

ANYWAY. Thanks for coming, reading & have a look through the rest of my little corner of the internet.

 

Much love,

 

Dawn x
