Miles Merrill writes and performs a mix of poetry, stories, lyrics and monologues. He does this internationally for festivals, private companies, cultural institutions, schools, libraries, theatre and music venues. Miles mainly performs solo but also collaborates with composers, musicians, film makers and visual artists. He publishes on CD, DVD, online and in print but is best experienced live. Miles brought poetry slams to Australia from Chicago, set up the international Australian Poetry Slam and is Creative Director of the literary and literacy arts organisation, Word Travels.
