Nic Stringer

A day that you happen to know, Nic Stringer’s debut collection, considers the effects of our desire to believe and the consequences of our vulnerability to power and influence.  In these poems knowledge is a state found by way of skin and as likely to be transient as transcendent.

Nic is a graduate of the MA Creative Writing programme at Royal Holloway where she won the University of London Prize in 2016.  Her poetry and art has appeared in magazines such as Magma and Structo and features in the anthology Bedford Square 10. She is a founding member of the sound collective Fractured Strings.

A day that you happen to know is 72 pages including 17 illustrations by Lucy Kerr. Lucy’s work plays with ‘stuff’ and ‘stuffness’ to create illusions that explore a ‘ritualistic dislocation from the everyday’. Printed on Mohawk Superfine and section sewn.
