I am currently studying for an MA in English Literature at King's College London. From September 2016 I will be working on my PhD in English Literature at Birkbeck, University of London.
My academic work examines the relationships between resistance literature, space, and everyday urban life, with a particular interest in the relationships between public urban space and contemporary protest literature from the UK, USA, and Ukraine.
A story about Fox, who lives in a glass tower in the city, and Witch, who lives in the edgelands beyond the ring road, for two voices and electronic/choral soundscape. Performed at the Australian National Folk Festival 2016 with Zoë Anderson and Becki Whitton.
Along with Zoë Anderson, Aaron Kirby and Fiona McLeod, I created and hosted Canberra Slamboree, a poetry slam of sorts. Canberra Slamboree goes on joyfully despite my moving to London. It is Australia's longest and (so far) only scout-themed slam poetry night.
I built a collaborative open calendar for the UK performance poetry community called Wordfeed. Use it, tell your friends, and contact me if you'd like to help me improve it!
I co-run Pilcrow Press, a small publishing house based in Canberra, Australia. We publish poetry and experimental fiction by young, new, or otherwise unknown writers.
We publish Prowlings, a tiny, print-it-yourself journal of microfiction and poetry.
Many years ago I made a webcomic with my friend Nate.
I also make zines, design websites (such as this one), translate, edit, cook, and enjoy trains a lot.
