Steven Hitchins is a poet, hailing from Rhondda Cynon Taf in South Wales, who graduated with a BA, MA and PhD in English and Creative Writing from Aberystwyth University.
His experience as a further education English Language and Literature teacher have formed a basis for the collaborative aspects of his poetry. A localised poet in the sense of being site-specific, he observes and imaginatively works with and through historical, geological and linguistic processes of his surrounding areas.
His poetry has been published extensively in publications such as The Literary Pocket Books, Poetry Wales, Fire, Chimera; and he has collaborated with other Welsh poets and artists on a number of projects.
He was selected as one of four Welsh writers and translators to participate in the 2020 Ulysses’ Shelter residency programme.
