*Kit Ingram (he/him) is a queer poet and writer based in South London. His work has been widely anthologised and appeared in magazines such as Ambit, Magma, and The North. Recent poetry of Kit’s has been commended in the Ambit Annual Competition, shortlisted for the Bridport Prize, and longlisted in the National Poetry Competition.
In 2022, he published Alice and Antius, an illustrated narrative poem with Penrose Press. Booklife at Publishers Weekly described the work as a ‘moving, gorgeous novel in verse [that] imagines the lives and minds of lovers facing a world ravaged by climate change.’ His debut UK poetry collection is forthcoming from Broken Sleep Books in October 2023.
Raised in Calgary, Canada, on the windswept foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Kit went on to graduate from the University of Toronto with an Honours Bachelor of Arts in philosophy. He now freelances as a storyteller working with various start-ups, creatives, and Indigenous-run businesses.
When he isn’t considering line breaks or the lives of his characters, you’ll find him playing with his golden retriever, Hugo.
