Jack Young is from Nottingham in the Midlands, UK. He currently lives in Barcelona. 

He writes poetry, prose and a combination of both as a kind of bricolage. 

He is interested in writing as a form of bricolage that attempts to cross boundaries of genre and form to open up new spaces. In these spaces he tries to find ways to articulate the fractured nature of experience, memory and loss. He is particularly interested in the translations of memory and trauma and the lacunas- such as silences- that exist between these translations. He is currently writing a novella exploring these ideas.

He also works with young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, where he develops arts-based critical pedagogy with a particular emphasis on multilingual filmmaking, applied theatre and creative writing.
