I’m Ashleigh, and this here’s my blog. I don’t really know what it is, but here we are.
I work as an editor and I live in Wellington, New Zealand.
On this blog I often write about memory, mental health, and cycling. I would like to say here that my proudest moment was being called ‘the poet-philosopher of the roads’ on a UK cycling website, some years ago. I write about other things, but those themes seem to resurface time and again.
I’m always keen to hear your thoughts on anything I write. Drop me a comment or an email: ashleigh [dot] young [at] gmail [dot] com
(But please don’t send me advertising stuff, and, um, please don’t send me your writing for me to give you editorial feedback on, unless we already know each other and you are planning to buy me a beer in return.)
Thanks for reading.
PS. A bit of media:
Here’s an interview from early 2014 on the Griffith Review site. I raved on a bit.
Here’s an interview I did in 2012 with extraordinary poet Hera Lindsay Bird on the Pantograph Punch.
Here’s a collection of poetry I wrote which you can buy if you like.
