Nicholas Elliot made his debut on the poetry and performance scene at Bar Oussou around May 2016. He has dabbled unsatisfactorily with writing all his life and is delighted that he might be finally finding a voice through spoken word. His voice currently includes his father – an Anglican minister – his teenage self, singing, sex (between consenting adults!) and wordplay.
He lives and works in Brunswick with his wife and two children. He is retiring from paid work on his 65th birthday in September next year and hopes to die, many years from now, whilst riding his bike.
He no longer believes in a god but is faithful to the laws of physics: his verse doesn’t exceed the speed of light and is warmer than zero degrees Kelvin – if it ever creates a gravity wave, no one will ever know.
