Lisette Auton lives in a land-locked town in northeast England with her literary rescue dog, Harper Lee. She wishes that she’d been born by the sea, but makes up for this by escaping to the coast whenever possible. She has a degree in Theatre Acting: Devised Performance which taught her how to be a tree. An MSc followed which did not further her tree-based education.
Lisette does stuff with words. She is a disabled writer, activist, poet, spoken word performer, actor, theatre-maker and creative practitioner. She is an award-winning poet and one of Penguin Random House UK’s WriteNow mentees for her children’s novel. She was awarded the 2019 Early Careers Residency for Literature at Cove Park by the Fenton Trust, and is on the TSS Publishing list of Best British & Irish Flash Fiction 2018–2019. Lisette delivers passionate spoken word pieces which spiral out from the personal to the universal. She uses her platform as a performer, writer and theatre-maker to make the invisible visible.
