Chris Price

Chris Price is the author of Husk (Best First Book of Poetry, Montana New Zealand Book Awards 2002) and The Blind Singer (2009), and the mixed-genre 'biographical dictionary' Brief Lives (2006); a new collection, Beside Herself, will appear in 2016 from Auckland University Press. In 2012 she was one of six poets from Germany and New Zealand to collaborate on the Transit of Venus Poetry Exchange (2012), and the resulting bi-lingual anthology is currently in production with Victoria University Press. She co-teaches the MA programme at the International Institute of Modern Letters, but is spending 2015 pursuing further biographical obsessions, with the help (at time of writing) of a residency at the Château de Lavigny, Switzerland.
