Majella wrote her first poem in September 2013 after signing up to Susan Millar DuMars' creative writing class at the Galway Technical Institute and fell hopelessly in love with writing (thanks Susan!). Before that she was a photographer and before that, a teacher. You can find her photography on Facebook under Fotissima and you'll still find her most days teaching at a secondary school in Mayo. She has to keep the day job since she is unlikely to make her first million selling poems and somebody has to put her young fella through college. She is going to carry on writing them regardless though because she absolutely adores it. She might even take your picture if you ask her. She's very good at it, even if she does say so herself.
