She has performed her work at many international festivals, often incorporating electronic sound in her readings as well as collaborating with musicians. Her monograph Contemporary Women’s Poetry and Urban Space: Experimental Cities was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2013, and she was editor of Poetry Wales from 2008-2014. She is a Senior Lecturer in the School of English at Bangor University.
Calum Gardner is a poet and PhD student from Glasgow, Scotland, currently researching a dissertation on Roland Barthes and English-language poetry at Cardiff University. Calum’s poetry has been published in journals such as Aufgabe and Zone and in 2014 was shortlisted for the Jane Martin Poetry Prize.
Cris Paul is a writer and artist from Wales, based in Caerphilly. His work could be described as ‘late modernist’, and through Bob Cobbing’s Writers Forum workshop, his time living in South America, his outlook was shaped enormously. His poetry, journalism, and criticism have been published widely in the Guardian as well as vital small press publications (Skald, Openned, Bad Press, Greatworks, Onedit). He has contributed to Wales Arts Review and Poetry Wales. His first book, Mantras for the City from the City, was published by Writers Forum and his second, Stenia Cultas Handbook, by Veer Books.
