A genre-defying and versatile writer, Penny Pepper’s work is a mixture of the quirky and the lewd, with a focus on examination of difference and identity. She wrote the taboo-breaking book Desires Reborn in 2012 and in 2013 she won a Creative Futures Literary Award.
In September 2014 her one-woman spoken word show, Lost in Spaces, premiered to strong reviews at Soho Theatre and toured in Autumn 2015. As a performance poet, she has performed over the UK, including London, Edinburgh and further afield in New York.
Besides recent guest slots on Newsnight, Sky News, BBC Radio5Live Hitlist, and columns for The Guardian, she is busy working on a memoir of her first years in London as a young, passionate punky poet, singer and disability activist.
