Camilla Nelson is a British language artist, small press publisher, creative programmer and freelance academic. Her work explores the materiality of language in page-based poetry, soundwork, installation and performance. Over the last 5 years she has published, installed, exhibited and performed her work in Palestine, Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Canada, Australia and the US.

Apples & Other Languages, Camilla's first full-length poetry collection, was long-listed for the Melita Hume Poetry Prize in 2015 and recently published by Knives Forks and Spoons. Her second collection, A Yarn Er Narrative, is forthcoming from Contraband Books. Camilla is founding editor of Singing Apple Press, a small independent press that produces hand-crafted, limited edition poem-prints, books and other objects. In 2016, having secured funding from Arts Council England, she curated The South West Poetry Tour, commissioning 62 poets to produce 31 collaborative performances for the Barbara Hepworth Museum, The Poly, Schumacher College, BRLSI and Hauser & Wirth Somerset, in association with The Enemies Project, SoundArt Radio & The Clearing. The script for Reading Movement was long-listed for The Leslie Scalapino Award for Innovative Women Performance Writers in 2016 and Tidal Voices, her collaboration with Rhys Trimble, was shortlisted for Swansea's Tidal Lagoon World-First Art Commission in association with Cape Farewell (2014). Her work has been funded by Arts Council England, British Council, Quartet Community Foundation and the European Cultural Foundation.

Camilla has a PhD in performance writing and is available for performances, lecturing, mentoring, workshops and editorial work upon request.
