Mac Dunlop

“In the hands of someone like Dunlop, performance poetry can encompass a whole range of different styles, and crowd-pleasing entertainment is only one of them. He displays an encouraging willingness to experiment, both in terms of writing techniques and of engaging with new media.”
Edward Picot, Hyperliterature Exchange
