55 pages


Get Over Yourself is a biographical delve into belonging, exclusion, and the relationship between self-awareness and self-delusion, the rejection of social norms, and the ways in which we accept and question implied cultural rules. Using humour, spoken word poetry and storytelling Leanne takes us through the familiar – teenage rebellion, grief, sex, self-esteem and self-discovery in a personal political narrative that always reminds us of the uncertain world we are growing into. The poems in this collection question received wisdom, playfully unravelling the awkward and the bizarre aspects of modern life. Leanne’s poetry is an exploration of human failures and resilience, the things that make us angry, and the things that make us laugh.
