Maddie Godfrey is a performance poet based in Perth. They’ve just released their debut poetry collection, How To Be Held.

They spoke to Alec Westgarth-Taylor about their practice.

‘This is a conversation we recorded earlier with WA based writer Maddie Godfrey. In a far ranging chat, we talk about a range of topics: Maddie’s backstory (and how they almost become Bones), the relationship between written and performance poetry, the characteristics of different forms of writing, as well as the role of poetry in education. Charles Bukowski may also threaten to appear.’
