Becky Cremin hails from Ireland by way of the world and currently lives in London. She has an MA in Poetic Practice from Royal Holloway University of London, and is currently undergoing a practice-led PhD ‘Investigating Contemporary Performance Through Poetic Practices’. She works in process and draws on traditions of live art, fluxus, performance writing and site specific work to construct a hybridity of practice which uses language as an object to expose, to investigate, to locate. She is a founding member of the poetic collective PRESS FREE PRESS, she regularly performs in London and beyond and her first chapbook Cutting Movement is now available from The Knives Forks and Spoons Press. Examples of her work can be found at

Cutting Movement is available from Knives Forks and Spoons Press for only £5 – or less if you take advantage of their 3 books for £10 or 10 books for £30 offer.
