Jennifer Leach
Name: Jennifer Leach
is a ClimateCultures Author

Jennifer Leach is a poet, writer, performer, storyteller. Her work is wild, forged in the fantastical reaches of deep imagination; she works with myth and archetype — in an unscholarly, instinctual way — to bring to life new stories for our strange times.

She is passionate about love and equality, justice and acceptance; she is both an activist and a dreamer. She is Director of Outrider Anthems, the company she established in 2011; it seeks to offer a sanctuary of (challenging) creativity in the inevitable turbulence of climate breakdown. It is a home for all Outriders – those who travel the lonely and perilous path to the boundaries of knowing and experience; the Outriders return with news of distant horizons, to collectively create new anthems for new ways of living.

Each day, Jennifer feels the full honour and magic of being alive, spiritually and creatively charged, in these times of painful change.
