We welcome our new resident poet, Kathryn Hummel
Kathryn will be in the reading room on a regular basis starting this Friday. She'll be collaborating with visitors and regulars to the reading room, working to create a perforamcne based on what has been created during her residency.
Here's a little info about her:
Having spent several years travelling, working and writing overseas, Kathryn Hummel, a native of Adelaide, is now a PhD candidate at the University of South Australia. Currently she is writing and researching autoethnography, drawing on her experiences of life in Bangladesh, and is in the process of developing a new genre of collaborative prose-poem, inspired by the work of Drik Picture Library and the South Asian Institute of Photography, Pathshala. As well as her poetry, Kathryn’s fiction and non-fiction, popular and academic writing has been published in Australia, the US, Nepal, Bangladesh, and India. A shameless cafe crawler, Kathryn enjoys all types of tea and takes her coffee with milk and one sugar.
