Agent: Abi Fellows
Evie (she/they), is both a domestic abuse survivor and qualified domestic abuse specialist, writer and the founder of Peaks of Colour - a Peak District based nature-for-healing community group, by and for people of colour.
Having worked in the VAWG sector for over 10 years', specialising in Black and queer survivors' intersectional experiences of gendered and racialised trauma, Evie left the sector when she became burnt out, disenfranchised and disillusioned. Her work now sits on the intersections of gendered, racial and land justice, and seeks to nurture survivors' joy, rest, hope and imagination as abolitionist praxis.
Advocating for the decolonisation of the outdoors, Evie’s interested in the ways nature can forge a landscape of healing and justice outside of carceral feminist models.
As a Northern freelance Evie she is passionate about the liberating form of writing as healing and resistance. Her debut book, Radical Rest, explores Black and Abolitionist Feminist approaches to activist burn out and will be published by Elliot & Thompson in 2024.
