Chrissy Williams is a poet, editor and tutor living in London.

She recently edited a book about Poetry Comics with artist Tom Humberstone, called Over the Line: An Introduction to Poetry Comics and has run various workshops for poets and artists to work together.

Alan Moore said about the book:

“This is that spine-tingling moment when two attractive and sophisticated forms, both admired for their rhythm and sense of timing, eye each other across the cultural dance floor… I really can’t recommend this venture highly enough.”

Chrissy is currently the editor of various comics, including the New York Times bestselling series The Wicked + The Divine.

She has also published various poetry pamphlets and criticism, including

Flying into the Bear (HappenStance Press, 2013),

ANGELA (with artwork by Howard Hardiman, Sidekick Books, 2013)

Epigraphs (if p then q, 2014)
