Debz Butler is the founder, host and director of Testify Poetry CIC but she is also a poet and writer in her own right.  

She has performed her work all over the north of England which covers a diverse range of topics including feminism, motherhood, life as a nurse and cancer.  

She not only hosts Testify Poetry, but also moonlights as the sometimes host of Sale Write Out Loud and has hosted a chairty event for over 200 people.

She has had both her poetry and fiction published online and in print. 

Debz has also been a filter judge for an international poetry competition.

When she isn't writing, she's working as a cancer nurse, recovering from her own diagnosis of breast cancer or wrangling her two children and labradoodle.
