Ross Sutherland was born Edinburgh in 1979. A former lecturer in electronic literature at Liverpool John Moore’s University, Ross’s poems have been published in Rising, Reactions, Orbis, Mercy, Tears in the Fence, The Fix and NME. A founding member of Aisle16, Ross has co-written eight live literature productions, including the critically acclaimed Poetry Boyband and Found in Translation. He’s completed solo tours of Switzerland and Germany, during which the Basel Zeitgung described him as “strömschnellen”. He is reliably informed that this has something to do with white water rafting.
