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. 

His most recent sequence of poems Psychosis explores mental health, trauma and memory and he is currently working on a graphic novel. His creative essay Dreams was written as a meditation on dreams (big and small); his dad and new labour (and the death of both of those things). 

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.
