About The Author!

Two of Smith’s works, her first pairing and the essay, “Getting In and Out” (2017), and the story, “Now More Than Ever” (2018), are writing during the difficult political times, coinciding with the rise of President Trump in the United States. The second pairing – “Fences: A Brexit Diary” (2016) and the short story, “The Lazy River” is written in the historical moment of the Brexit vote – or the vote in the United Kingdom to exit from the European Union.

Smith explored how language – through the use of metaphor, symbols, idioms and the multiplicity of meaning – carries political weight and is central to identity politics, political correctness, and the intensive and punitive use of social media.
