Melissa is an accomplished and well respected poet who has been active on the Dublin scene for over four years. After revamping UCD's LitSoc as her role as auditor, Melissa has been bringing a fresh perspective to the Irish Spoken Word Community. Through her personal work and her work with the talented poetry collective, The Cracked Spine Melissa brings her experience and her heart to everything she does.
Being Boundless to Melissa is being free, having the curiosity and boldness to step outside of yourself and connect to others and the world around us.
Melanie, while not a poet herself is a creative who for years has been a consumer and facilitator of spoken word and other artforms in Ireland. Through her work in advertising, digital media and her non-profit work she brings her professional skills and industry experience to every project she works on.
Being Bare to Melanie is about being comfortable in vulnerability and baring witness to your truths
"Be unapologetic in your self
Look for the edges in life
Skirt and skip
Be audacious, be love
Forgive and let those you love see you
Boundless and Bare"
- Melissa Ridge
