The first of the book tour events, in Dunmow.
"This is a celebration of you winning, and continuing to win. Everyday there's a battle but you're winning and this is you showing other people that they can win as well. I think this is just amazing and I'm so glad to be able to talk about it on the show tonight."
"I am now living the very future that I didn't know existed"
The poem I wrote in the morning after the February half term Book Launch.
"...I’m so proud of Alice. Her struggle against anorexia is immense and although it’s something you can’t just switch off, it is clear that she is heading in the right direction."
"What a inspiring night from a brave young lady with immense talent, nurtured by selfless people who really know what talent is and what to do to make it reach it's potential. I am honoured to be held in such high esteem in the right circles."
"Over 100 attendees listened to the audio play of Alice's journey through anorexia which started in the playground of her local junior school when she was just eight years old."
"I am very proud to represent Mind in West Essex as an Ambassador for their ‘Let’s Talk Essex’ campaign; although mental health is being spoken about more across our nation, it is movements such as these that encourage open conversations about the many aspects of mental health that remain incredibly stigmatised."
"I write to release the thoughts and feelings I am bottling up. When I'm feeling raw with emotion, I spill them into poems and the thing that was two minutes ago so overwhelming suddenly becomes tolerable."
"To anyone out there who is struggling, it’s never too late to reach out and turn your life around. It is the hardest thing you will ever do, but also the most rewarding. I am proof of that."
'An audioplay written by Writer's Room regular Alice Bromell was the subject of an interview for BBC Radio Essex last Tuesday when the power of creative writing to help battle eating disorders and confidence issues in young people were discussed.'
"We are delighted to be partnering with Creative Walden for a brilliant new radio play to raise awareness of mental health and eating disorders. We had our first rehearsal last night and our students did us proud! This is going to be a great project."
"While being exceptionally creative what is truly remarkable about Alice's writing is just how candid and brutally honest she is about the eating disorders that have plagued her young life."
As featured in the newspapers Saffron Walden Reporter and Walden Local:
"Saffron Screen was packed as Writer's Room contributed poems that were screened prior to the film 'Zombie Occupation' ,including the incredibly powerful 'Anorexia' written by
Alice Bromell, 17"
'the girl who decided to go for it' is a collection of poetry based on my experience of living with and overcoming the struggles of having an eating disorder. The closing piece of the book is the written version of an audio play, which was supported by Uttlesford Youth Initiative Working Group.
