Olivia Scott-Berry is a writer from South East London. She studied English Literature at Newnham College, Cambridge, where she began experimenting with collagic approaches to themes of gender and ecology in various formats, including poetry and essays. Her work has appeared in Pilot Press’s A Queer Anthology of Rage and online at MAP Magazine. She is currently working on her first long piece of prose.
