Fiona Stevens is a prose writer and poet who lives and writes in Tamaki Makaurau. Her work has previously appeared in brief.the.journal and Ingenio in Aotearoa, and the Blue Nib in the UK. She curates and MCs the Verse Us live poetry events held periodically throughout the year. Fiona grew up working class and developed a strong feminist consciousness, and these influences can be seen in her poetry. She likes to step outside of those boxes too.
