Michelle Green

Michelle Green (UK) is an acclaimed poet-turned-short story writer, and a well-loved figure on the Manchester spoken word scene. In 2005 she won the North West Regional Poetry Slam, and has since performed across the UK, both solo and in collaboration with musicians and visual artists, at festivals such as the Big Chill, as well as on BBC Radio 4. She has published her poems and short stories in numerous magazines and anthologies (including Bitch Lit and City Secrets), and her first collection of poetry Knee High Affairs was published by Crocus in 2006. In 2005 she worked for a humanitarian aid agency in West Darfur at the height of the Sudanese civil war in Darfur, and for the past two years has been writing a collection of interlinked short fictions drawing upon this experience. The collection is due out from Comma next year.

Pobijedila je 2005. na regionalnom pjesničkom slamu (North West Regional Slam) i otad je nastupala diljem Velike Britanije, sama ili u suradnji s glazbenicima i likovnjacima, na festivalima poput Big Chill i na BBC Radio 4. Pjesme i kratke priče objavljene su joj u brojnim časopisima i antologijama (među kojima su Bitch Lit i City Secrets), a prvu joj je zbirku poezije Knee High Affairs objavio Crocus 2006. Tijekom 2005, u jeku građanskoga rata u Sudanu, radila je u Zapadnom Darfuru s jednom humanitarnom organizacijom, a protekle je dvije godine provela pišući zbirku međusobno povezanih kratkih proznih tekstova temeljenih na tom iskustvu. Zbirku bi iduće godine trebao objaviti Comma Press.
