Tim Evans in conversation with Carmen Main
Tim Evans is recovering from being English and, since 2015, has been working through this by performing his poems at strangers. His hobbies include anxiety, depression, jokes, and trying to do all of them at the same time. He’s been published in the audio journal Audacious Vol. 4, in Australian Poetry Journal and in the upcoming anthology Solid Air from University of Queensland Press.
Tim has featured at numerous poetry events across Melbourne and Victoria, and was awarded an honourable mention at the 2017 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize. In 2018 he reached the final round of the Slamalamadingdong! Grand Slam and became a member of the only Australian team to compete at the National Poetry Slam in Chicago. The NPS festival organisers invited him to share his work on the finals stage at the UIC Forum.
He also performed in New York at the Bowery Poetry Club and the Newyorican Poets Cafe.
Several people have said nice things about his poetry but have refused to go on the record. He likes using self-depreciation but he isn’t very good at it.
