Currently, Guinevere is completing a Creative Writing Research PhD at Swansea University, forming a new poetry collection themed around maternity, single parenting, relationships and gender inequality, with site-specific focus to South and West Wales.
She was commissioned in 2019 to write poetry among eight other Welsh poets for the feminist collaborative arts, 'Dear Christine' touring gallery exhibition, which explored the life of 1960's icon, Christine Keeler, launching the poems at a live gallery event at London's ARTHOUSE1 and Swansea's Elysium gallery. In 2016, she was lucky to work alongside Owen Sheers, tutoring, writing and performing as part of Swansea University's link into the Swansea Coast: My One and All project. She read her poetry at a 2020 British Library event with the Jaipur Festival via Swansea University's Cultural Institute. She also reads on the Cardiff's Lyrical Miracles and Swansea Live Poets open mics and was invited to read in 2019 at the Poetry Wales Spells & Sanctums evening, reading her poem Sanctuary, among others.
Guinevere's other passion is belly dance, which she's practiced and taught for 20 years. In 2011, she launched The Belly Dancer's Treasure Pack, an illustrated guidance book and empowering card set which she wrote, co-produced and self published with marketing support from The Bellydance Superstars. Her writing and work on belly dance has been included in Dancing in the UK, Nafoura and Take it Easy magazines, BBC Radio Wales, Radio Pembrokeshire and Radio Ceredigion.

She has tutored Creative Writing and Community Dance for the Arts Care charity and facilitated poetry workshops for Swansea County Council on the 'Fusion Project'.
