"Sometimes," she says of them, "they feel like the same thing". Tamsin is a freelance writer, editor and chancer.In 2000 Tamsin Kendrick lost her poetry virginity through a loudspeaker on Clapham Common to a homeless man and his dog. She has been performing in some of the most prestigious poetry nights and venues ever since. Whilst studying Philosophy and Theology at Oxford she hosted an open-mike night called Poetry Unhinged on The High.Tamsin has performed at many places including Shortfuse's Poetry Idol, the Latitude Festival, New Blood, Heartbeats (Liverpool), Voice & Verse (Galway Ireland), The Cellar, The Bricklane Festival, Elephest, Fruitstock and at Dodo modern poets. She has also done a mini New York tour where she featured at the Bowery Poetry Club and the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.She has also been published in various poetry/magazines such the Wolf, the Delinquent, The Fix and Rising. She is currently working on her first collection.

People say things like:

"Just your average, giggly girl about town with an Oxford degree in philosophy. Muses on faith and the emotional grime of London life, the only poet I know of to be young yet experienced enough to feature in both eras of New Blood!" Niall O'Sullivan, host of New Blood and The Cellar

"One of the hot new stars of the London poetry scene, intelligent, fierce, honest and delivered with a unique stage presence." Shortfuse
