Many thanks to our March guest, Kate Middleton. The next few weeks shall be turned over to Pip Smith, whose bio is below.
Pip Smith runs the monthly short fiction night Penguin Plays Rough, and edited the group’s first book The Penguin Plays Rough Book of Short Stories, launched at the Sydney Writers’ Festival in 2011. She has had her poems and stories published in Voiceworks, HEAT, Island Magazine, Pan Magazine and Going Down Swinging, and recently as part of Picaro Press’ Wagtail series. With the help of a Varuna Fellowship, she has a collection of poems forthcoming in 2012, and is currently a doctoral candidate at UWS. 2012 will see her finalising a digital poem made of transcripts from Wayside Chapel written for the Red Room Company’s Clubs and Societies project, and co-directing the National Young Writers’ Festival.
