About me
My name is Maria and I'm a writer, model and musician based in London after recently having graduated from UCL with a degree in Comparative Literature. In terms of interests, I am currently researching the crossroads between poetry, music and storytelling. This interest has led me to curate a podcast which I independently host on Know Wave. In terms of career, currently I work for an online writing academy, which is something that I adore. I'm seeking a position to further my interests in music, writing and the arts.

  • Podcast / Birds
    Podcast / BirdsHave you ever seen a baby pigeon? Or a pigeon in the night? Where do they go? In the second, more lighthearted episode of my Avice Caro podcast series I try to make sense of one of my favourite creatures "birds". I explore bird as animal, as symbol, as metaphor and make use of poetry, classical myth and even song to better understand them. This is a humorous analysis of our day to day encounters with the creatures. So whether you actually believe pigeons are CIA agents or not, enjoy the ride
  • Podcast / New Beginnings
    Podcast / New BeginningsHere I approach new beginnings from a different perspective by exploring literary/music texts and personal experiences . I discuss womanhood, Greek myth, the changing of the seasons, post natal depression & many more through poetry and music by Sylvia Plath, Lermontov, Sibylle Baier and others! This podcast series is an expansion of my multimedia project Avice Caro and is full of babbles for the lonely, the happy, the sad! It works as background noise, a cooking soundtrack, can be listened to b
