White Horses

He offered me a white horse and a happily ever after.

I have never been much for hollow happiness,

And ever afters are plans I couldn’t ever stick to.


I counter-offered two white horses, two streams of thought,

And the uncertainty of love in the here and now…

Emily Algar

I am a journalist, writer and poet based in the United Kingdom. My portfolio includes music reviews and interviews with musicians and artists as well as political writing such as the commercialisation of feminism, rape culture, and covering the shooting at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris in 2015 and the issue of freedom of speech and the media. My background is in International Relations and Security, but I have always been passionate about music and storytelling. In my writing, I attempt to place music in a broader framework of culture and politics. I believe that music and art can offer a powerful commentary on political and societal issues in the world and my writing and poetry reflects this.
