Lily Holloway

Lily Holloway (born in 1998, she/they) is a forever-queer postgraduate English student and graduate teaching assistant. In her spare time she enjoys reading New Zealand literature and visiting second-hand markets with her girlfriend (to collect vintage Teletubbies paraphernalia, of course). Her creative writing has been published in Cordite Poetry Review, Starling, Scum, Landfall, The Pantograph Punch, Midway Journal, and other various nooks and crannies.

In 2020, Lily was honoured to receive the Shimon Weinroth Prize in Poetry, the Kendrick Smithyman Scholarship for Poetry and second place in the Charles Brasch Young Writers' Essay Competition. She is an executive editor of Interesting Journal and sits on the boards of the New Zealand Poetry Society and the Same Same But Different queer literary festival. Lily has a chapbook forthcoming in AUP New Poets 8.

She probably wants to be your penpal.

Lily is based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa.
