Kate Durbin is a Los Angeles, California based writer, curator and performance artist. She is the author of several books of fiction and poetry including E! Entertainment, ABRA, The Ravenous Audience, and five chapbooks. Durbin’s work primarily centers around popular culture, gender, and digital media.
Kate is visiting Australia as the 2015 Arts Queensland Poet in Residence.
Of Durbin’s writing, Christopher Higgs wrote for HTML Giant: “I call Kate Durbin one of the most compelling contemporary American writers because I feel like she’s in her own lane. No one does what she does in the way that she does it.”
Kate has two appearances at The Brisbane Writers Festival Today and Tomorrow 05-06 September.
