I’m Ashleigh, and this here’s my blog. I don’t really know what it is, but here we are.
Potted bio: I’m an editor and writer (of poems and essays) 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
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.
And here’s an interview with terrific short story writer and novelist Craig Cliff at Three Islands.
Here’s a collection of poetry I wrote which you can buy if you like.
