Nathan Curnow is an award-winning poet, performer and past editor of Going Down Swinging. His previous books include The Ghost Poetry Project, RADAR, and The Right Wrong Notes. His most recent collection The Apocalypse Awards (2016) is inspired by the absurdity of the modern world and charts our collective obsession with the end times. A recipient of the Josephine Ulrick Poetry Prize, his work is published widely in Australia and overseas, and in numerous issues of Best Australian Poems (Black Inc.).
As a spoken word performer he has collaborated with a range of gifted creatives, including Dr Carmel Wallace, composer Anthony Lyons, musicians Wulfbyrne Brown, Joel Roberts, Michael Wallace, and Geoffrey Williams. He features regularly at festivals across the country and has been broadcast on ABC, JJJ and Radio New Zealand. He is a father of four daughters and a regular swimmer of the pool’s black line.
