Current partnerships include: co-editor & co-curator of Poem of the North; lead poet at the Northern Poetry Library (Morpeth, England); collaborative artist and co-founder of A Year in Beadnell, an eco-poetic project inspired by the Northumberland Coast and the life and works of Rachel Carson.
Most of these current projects are in stasis while Lisa writes up her thesis. However, she plans to develop several of these projects in the future, synthesising a number of her current research strands.
Previously projects and collaborations include: Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the medical schools of Newcastle and Durham Universities; Writer in Residence at the BBC; co-founder (with Julia Darling) and Director of ProudWords the UK’s only creative writing festival run by and for LGBTIQ people; co-founder and editor of The Blue Room a performance and publication space for emerging women writers; Poetry Editor at Mslexia Magazine; creator/RA of How Gay Are Your Genes? and Stemistry, both sci-art impact and co-inquiry projects.
Lisa’s work has been exhibited at The Hatton Gallery (Newcastle University), Sunderland Museum & Galleries and Newcastle City Libraries, and she has presented papers on a number of research strands including: radical pedagogies and generative practice; eco-poetic fieldwork; sequential poetics and practice-led research for creatives in the academy.
