Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset My name is Mariah and I’m a poet and academic from Oxford.

I’m currently based in the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester where I’m writing a collection of poems and researching trauma and representation in contemporary Irish fiction.

My work is interested in the interdisciplinary point where creative and critical practice intersect, especially when it comes to how creative practice can help speak the unspeakable in contemporary political culture.

I’m also Director of Oxford Writers’ House, a hub that brings Oxford’s writing communities into dialogue through a program of interdisciplinary events and publication opportunities. You can find out more here.
