She is included in many anthologies in UK and internationally. In 2016 she won the Quick Reads Award for Respect!  published by Barrington Stoke. She has won a UKRA (now UKLA) award and has also been an International Reading Association Choice and a World Book Day Recommended Read and is a National Poetry Day Ambassador.

Michaela, (along with Jan Dean and Liz Brownlee), has produced Reaching the Stars. Poems about Extraordinary Women and Girls (2017 Macmillan) and she also edited and contributed to Wonderland: Alice in Poetry (Macmillan) which was shortlisted for the CLiPPA 2017.
