OISIN HARRIS

Oisin Harris is a Poet, Librarian and aspiring literary fiction editor. Oisin has performed across Kent, including Margate’s very own Bookie Slam, Canterbury’s Lickity Spit and You’re Bard.

He finds beauty in reading Rumi and listening to Nas or Joanna Newsom. His work tends to be highly poetic and likes to explore themes of nature, decay, our bodies’ relation to time and finding the wondrous in the daily grind. Oisin has been published in Ariadne’s Thread, the Sussex Badger and Ripple. He is a shadow judge on the Man Booker International Prize and is currently pursuing scholarly research on Women in Translation and on T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land and its rape of Philomela.
