Max Wallis is a poet and artist based in East London. Widely published in both poetry journals and magazines, Wallis's main motive is to get poetry into places it's not normally seen.
- Rangy, with an eye on the main chance and ruthless in the pursuit of my own convenience.
- Like cats but don’t eat nearly enough veg.
- Would like to meet: you.
(I leave it to you to decide which of these are false)
Location? Hackney, in a converted factory
Here for? Substance
Who would you like to meet? W. H. Auden
Who would be in your Top 8? Everyone I've loved.
Who are your heroes? The man who can rise with the first ring of the alarm
Describe yourself using one quote…
“Stars. Or rather, the drains of heaven – waiting. Little holes. Little centuries opening just enough for us to slip through.”
― Ocean Vuong, Night Sky with Exit Wounds
