Hello - thank you for visiting! My name is Chrissy Williams. I live in London, work at the Poetry Library and am joint organiser of the Poetry Book Fair. I am half-Italian.
My pamphlet Flying into the Bear was published in 2013 by HappenStance Press and was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Awards. The TLS called it "the most energetic, delightful collection you will read this year".
My poems and essays have appeared in various places, including Adventures in Form, Poetry London, Poetry Review, The Rialto, The Scotsman, S/S/Y/K and Tears in the Fence. I am Joint Editor of the (currently snoozing) world's first and finest edible poetry magazine: Poetry Digest.
I have two other pamphlets, The Jam Trap (Soaring Penguin) and ANGELA (Sidekick Books), both created in collaboration with comics artists. I have taught on poetry and comics for the Poetry School, and run an informal poetry and comics workshop. There's a poetry comics scrapbook online here.
