Christine Kennedy is a Sheffield-based writer, artist and independent scholar who has published co-authored articles on women’s experimental poetry.

Her poetry publications include ‘Hobby Horse: A Puppet Play for Cabaret Voltaire’ in Dadadollz (ISPress, 2010), Nineteen Nights in San Francisco (West House Books / The Cherry On The Top Press, 2007) and Possessions (The Cherry On The Top Press, 2003). The poetry sequence Twelve Entries from The Encyclopaedia of Natural Sexual Relations is published by The Cherry On The Top Press (2000/2003) including her short supporting essay. The White Lady’s Casket, her site-specific text installation for Bishops’ House and her supporting essay, are published in RSE 4packs No4: Renga + (Reality Street Editions, 2002). She is the co-author of Women’s Experimental Poetry in Britain 1970-2010: Body, Time and Locale (Liverpool University Press, 2013) which is the first full-length study of these poets.
