Justin Hopper is a writer from Pittsburgh, USA. He lives and works in England.
Justin is a writer exploring the intersection of landscape, memory and myth through non-fiction, poetry and audio projects. His site-specific audio poems have been commissioned and funded by the Shorelines Festival of Literature of the Sea, the SPILL Festival of Performance and the Sprout Fund, and included collaborators such as Scanner, Shirley Collins, Jem Finer, Lost Harbours and Susie Honeyman. His sold-out courses on landscape writing and art have run annually at Tate Britain for four years. He has spoken and performed at events hosted by Oxford and Cambridge, the National Maritime Museum, Somerset House and the Institut Francais; on the banks of the Thames estuary and in a field in rural Essex. There is further info available on select Projects or, for audio poetry projects including Public Record, I Made Some Low Inquiries and Ley Line, visit the Jackdaw Shivers bandcamp site.
The Old Weird Albion, a book of journeys into the English underculture along the South Downs Way, is published December, 2016, by Penned In The Margins.
