About

Alyssia MacAlister is a Brighton-based writer and editor. On both page and stage, Alyssia is concerned with exploring narratives with a poetic frame, finding the beautiful in the strange. In writing she can find unspoken traumas and the meanings behind silences. Wide-ranging past interests include virtual reality and the female body, spiders and grief. Alyssia’s specialty is prose poetry, but she often works in found poetry and experiments with more traditional verse. She also has a scalpel eye for editing any kind of poetry or prose and produces poetry workshops.

Currently, Alyssia is working on a poetry collection, NSFW: How to Skin a Rabbit and her first Brighton Fringe show, Not About the Baby – so watch this space…
