Roadkill for Beginners

Publisher: Math Paper Press
  • Description
  • About the Author
  • Roadkill for Beginners is Stephanie Chan’s first collection of poetry. It’s part scrapbook of love letters to places, part field guide to the people in them. It’s a messy celebration of open mics, bonfires, and poetry stages around the world, the connections that grow up around them and the adventures that happen after. It explores desire, moving, belonging, and everything in between. It’s got apocalyptic hawker centres, magical night bus rides, and hungry turkey vultures. It’s about growing up, and not. For you, it hopes to feel like the lyrical equivalent of spooning in strange buildings then flying at full speed down a steep empty road on a bike at two in the morning.

  • Stephanie "Dogfoot" Chan was the 2010 Singapore Poetry Slam Champion and the 2012 UK Poetry Slam Champion. She has represented both countries at international poetry slam championships including the Indian Ocean Poetry Slam and the Poetry World Cup. Her writing has been published in various local and international literary journals and anthologies. She currently hosts and organises The Singapore Story Slam and recently founded a performance poetry night called Spoke & Bird.
