"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


'Intricacy, delicacy, sensitivity and porn are just some of the people who populate the ever intriguing writings of Max Wallis, here we have a risk-taker whose imagination is as able as his talent. One of the most exciting young poets in quite some time.' (Gerry Potter, aka Chloe Poems). Described as the 'future of poetry' by David Hoyle, Max took Manchester 'word by storm' (Tony Walsh) in 2010, performing across guest slots and at Kendal Calling Festival. He is based in London and Manchester and his debut pamphlet 'Modern Love' is being published with Flipped Eye.

Something short of amazing, this. Pressed together in a book of limbs.
A story writ from a soaring night's dreams.
We are words on pages folded, like kisses, xs of lines joined.
