He is the co-editor of Voice Recognition: 21 Poets for the 21st Century, an anthology of British and Irish poets under 35, to be published by Bloodaxe in 2009, and the Collected Poems of Hope Mirrlees, forthcoming from Carcanet in 2010. In 2008 he won the Treci Trg poetry prize in Serbia. As a result his Selected Poems is to be published (in a bilingual edition) in Belgrade in 2009.
The TypewriterGirls are a performance art troupe who strive to embody the Comte de Lautréamont's creed "poetry must be made by all." Taking their cues from Hugo Ball and Tristan Tzara's Cabaret Voltaire, TypewriterGirls co-founders Crystal Hoffman and Margaret Bashaar orchestrate poetry cabarets that may include dancing, live music, circus acts, time travel and a million other surprises along the way. Always inspiring and exciting!
