This new collection of poems by Sharena is a brave, direct and personal exploration of the dark and often unspoken experiences of a woman’s life. Each poem draws you into a world at once familiar and sometimes shocking but telling a very real story to the point and with emotion.
‘Sharena’s poetry is a live demonstration of how poetry enables survival and healing. Her voice is honest, candid and vulnerable and this collection is a generous offer to the world!’
‘I cried whilst reading some of the poems as Sharena has the ability to fully submerge you in the life and experiences of the women depicted so intimately.’

Sharena Lee Satti is extremely proud and excited to share their latest work "She"
The poems in She cover an already long career as an inspiring live poet, host and workshopper – it is obvious straight away that Sharena has produced a formidable body of work. Her poems are real, raw and honest, addressing issues such as survival, cultural-identity, life’s battles, self-love, body dysmorphia and many other subjects that people struggle to speak out about. Her love of nature is also evident. She writes with her emotions to the fore and her heart at the centre – with a power that can leave you breathless.
I wanted to read something Northern and from someone with duel heritage and this book was spot on. Sharena writes with soul wrapped in Northern slang making it hit home for many. Her insight and flow of words left me turning each page, eager for more. I am not a big poetry fan but found this book a melodious dream. I feel more is to come from Sharena and cannot wait to see where she takes us next.
