“Hudson-Clayton reminds us that women are not rays of sunshine but supercell storms.” - Female Arts Review.
Imogen’s work as a writer and poet is auto-fictional and often blends themes of identify, grief, nature and healing, with the erotic. In 2020 she was published in the photography book and poetry anthology Hidden in Chaos by Chris Holmes and Trope. She is currently developing NAMELESS, a piece of spoken word gig theatre; a passionate, reckless and raw story about trauma, survival and love.
