About Steven

Steven Hitchins a poet from the South Wales Valleys. Brought up in Abercynon, where the River Cynon meets the Taff, he currently lives a few miles downriver in Pontypridd. Through publications such as Bitch Dust (Hafan 2012), The White City(Aquifer 2015) and Ilan (Stranger Press 2018), he has been conducting a mobile, non-linear mapping of the South Wales coalfield, using cut-up techniques and psychogeographical dérives to excavate industrial wounds and geological layerings along the invisible routes of the deleted canals.
