I said my first words at 3 (born in 1987). Those words, according to my parents, were "Shut up! You sit down!"

I've become less abrasive since then (sometimes).

Hi there! I'm Suzie GeeForce, a London based spoken word artist and playwright. I've has performed poetry in London and Edinburgh and been published by Lunar Mission One, Visual Verse and Enigma Magazine.

In 2016, I was nominated for the Long form Rhysling Award for her poem "Artist Signature" and published a collection of poetry called "Energy (or the Art of Keeping it Together).

 I have recently taken part in a series of readings at the BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) and performed at the Bifrost Cabaret at Nineworlds Geekfest 2016.

Here's some back story:

Writing is my biggest passion without a trace of a lie. When I was 6 years old, I knew I'd be a writer. I wrote my first book at this age about a little girl who, under the impression that she was receiving a pet rabbit, receives a cat. Until she opens it, she doesn't know the contents of the box. She spends the bus journey home with the pet carrier in total bliss. Maybe I was using the thought experiment of Schrodinger as a literary standpoint - or the struggle of anticipation vs. reality that we learn through childhood. Maybe I just wanted a cat.

I've been studying Creative Writing ever since and am currently in my final year of my Creative Writing PhD. Science Fiction and Magic Realism has been my genre of choice and this leaks into playwriting, prose and poetry.

Spoken word taught me confidence. Spoken word made me fight through depression, rejections and break-ups. It's truly changed my life. I want to share it with you and be in a comfortable position to do so. I'd like the space to write even more. I want to create more opportunities for you.

I have performed at the Roundhouse, the Poetry Cafe, the Good Ship, the Free Word Centre and the Edinburgh Fringe. I have taught Science Fiction and creative writing in schools and communities. I want to continue these workshops, including performance poetry and linking these with the imaginations that Science Fiction and Magic Realism can bring.
