Harry Josephine Giles is a writer and performer from Orkney, living in Leith. Their verse novel Deep Wheel Orcadia is coming out with Picador in October 2021. Their poetry collections The Games (Out-Spoken Press, 2018) and Tonguit (Freight Books 2015) were between them shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, the Saltire Prize and the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award. They have a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Stirling. Their show Drone debuted in the Made in Scotland Showcase at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe and toured internationally, and their performance What We Owe was picked by the Guardian's best-of-the-Fringe 2013 roundup – in the “But Is It Art?” category.  

Founded in 2018, Hysteria is an intersectional feminist arts platform for women, non binary and gender-marginalised creatives based in Aberdeen.  Over the past three years, Hysteria has facilitated various events and projects including performance nights, protests, a poetry slam, writing workshops and zines.  What started out as a monthly performance night featuring music, spoken word and comedy, has grown into a close-knit community of artists who gather to support, empower and uplift one another.
