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 latest 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 has been included in numerous issues of Best Australian Poems (Black Inc).
As a spoken word performer he features regularly at festivals across the country and has recently toured Europe with loop artist Geoffrey Williams. Their unique two-man show The Night Reverses premiered at White Night Ballarat in 2017, and continues to play sold-out shows at The Lost Ones Basement Bar. In 2018 it featured at the OFFMilosz Festival in Poland, and opened the Heidelberger Literaturtage Festival in Germany.
