She is an Australian Writers Centre alumni and regularly attends writing groups, workshops and writing festivals.

Coming "Clean" through Poetry - with Scott-Patrick Mitchell!
In this very special episode, Sofia and Georgia speak to the marvellous Scott-Patrick Mitchell, a Boorloo (Perth)-based poet, writer and mentor, about their poetry collection "Clean," which was shortlisted for both Book of the Year at the 2023 WA Premier's Book Awards and in the poetry category at the Victorian Premier's Literary Awards. We talk to Scott-Patrick about not only their experience of composing Clean, but what poetry means to them and how writing - and art as a whole - can bring out the beautiful in the darkest of circumstances. Scott-Patrick also shares their personal tips for emerging poets, as well as what's next in their writing journey. Thank you so much to Scott-Patrick for being on the podcast!DISCLAIMER: This episode refers to Scott-Patrick's journey of methamphetamine addiction and recovery.
