In 2014 we asked people to share their experiences of psoriasis, living with a visible skin condition or feeling different. A selection of these poems have now been brought to life on camera. Some are written by professional poets, others by novice poets. We believe all are powerful, emotive and thought provoking.

Pippa said "I have had psoriasis for forty three and a half years.
I have ducked and dived, wheeled and dealed,begged and pleaded, cursed and threatened it. All to no avail. So I decided to make a little friend of it and have some fun!! Pip is a Reptilamorphic Personification of my skin. How cool is that?"
