Full Biography

Lorna Callery is a poet, visual artist, performer and educator with experience in working in Offender Learning. She is interested in the softening of boundaries between artforms, specifically visual art and poetry, and in the the use of creative processes in rehabilitation.

She co-founded Monosyllabic, a monthly spoken word event, as well as Polka Dot Punks (2011-2012), a pop-up art gallery in and around Glasgow, supporting emerging artists: a visual art experience combined with live theatre and installation work; Hidden City, site-specific performance poetry in Glasgow; and Chromatic Voices [2007-2008], a multi-voiced poetry ensemble in partnership with Confab. Her work can be found in a variety of publications and online, including most recently Be the First to Like This: new Scottish poetry (2014).
