Meet the EUOIA Collaborators: S.J. Fowler

With S.J. Fowler I created the Swedish poems of Kajsa Bergstrom for Twitters for a Lark: Poetry of the European Union of Imaginary Authors. You can read more about Kajsa, here, indeed it is a longer biographical note than we had room to print in the book! Steven is one of the two poets (the other being Rupert Loydell) who deserve the name Mr Collaboration, in Steven's case for his organising of many poets in collaboration, under many titles. Indeed, this project began at one of his Enemies readings, when he paired Zoe Skoulding and myself. 

S. J. Fowler is a poet and artist. He works in the modernist and avant-garde traditions, across poetry, fiction, theatre, sonic art, visual art, installation and performance. He has published various collections of poetry and text, and been commissioned by Tate Modern, BBC Radio 3, and others. He has been translated into 21 languages and performed at venues across the world, from Mexico City to Erbil, Beijing to Tbilisi. He is the poetry editor of 3:am magazine, Lecturer at Kingston University, teaches at Tate Modern and is the curator of the Enemies project.
