I’m Ashleigh, and this here’s my blog. I don’t really know what it is, but here we are.
On this blog I often write about memory, mental health, cycling, and inconsequential things that wouldn’t fit anywhere else. 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 these 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 please don’t send me your writing for me to give editorial feedback on, unless we already know each other and you are planning to buy me a beer in return.)
I work as an editor at Victoria University Press and a creative writing tutor at the International Institute of Modern Letters.
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.
