Posie Rider is so-o-o close to finishing her first psychosis memoir that she's just going to say it's finished: A Year Off the Ward (2011) is a cross between The Bell Jar & Novel on Yellow Paper & Bridget Jones. Will be published by top publisher very soon & make fortunes of all involved. This chapbook will be priceless. Her poetry - neo-nature, clitolyric, gushing romantix, urban beats - has been lauded by most & can be found in tristunundisolde (arthur shilling press 2010), across the internet (go there, follow the blue link), in infinite journals, and right here. Most days she is restless - her hands are stained with wine & ink & blood. She lives in North London with her cat Emmeline Pankhurst - she makes an excellent lemon drizzle cake - and she & likes to think of herself as writer in residence, even if it is only in her own bed.
