Amy McCauley lives in Manchester. Her current projects include: a book called Oedipa, which reimagines the Oedipus myth, a book of essays on language, violence and desire, and a novel-in-verse about Joan of Arc. Amy’s work explores the possibility of responding to canonical texts and myths, and her writing often enters into a dialogue with these mythic narratives. Much of her work begins with voices engaged in a struggle, and she likes to write using the page as a performance space. Amy’s poems, essays and interviews have been published widely in magazines and anthologies, and she is poetry submissions editor for New Welsh Review.
