Dr. Willow is a poet and performer who researches and writes utopian poetics, what she defines as "a poetic practice that both performs and gestures towards the possibility of embodied intersubjectivity." Her chapbook of experimental writing with visual artist Joe Evans, The Unfinished Dream (Sad Press, 2016), is also accompanied by an artist book, short film and a performance. Her poetry collections include ATHA (Knives Forks and Spoons Press, 2019) and [un].holy: 33 sonnets for Brigid (Hesterglock Press, 2020), in addition to co-editing the anthology, Writing Utopia 2020 (Hesterglock). Her other poems have been published with Pendemic, Datableed, para.text, Eyewear, Adjacent Pineapple, The Projectionist's Playgound and ZARF. Her reviews of new experimental literature have been published in The Journal of British and Irish Innovative Poetry, Studies in Arts and Humanities Journal, The Contemporary Small Press and Northern Review.
