Mark Dimaisip is a published writer, a teaching artist, and a poetry slam champion. He has been featured in events like Performatura Festival, Intramuros Rising and Filipino ReaderCon and his poems have appeared in literary publications such as A Literation Magazine, Human Parts, and The Brazilia Review.
His work sits somewhere between nerdville and nirvana—using cats to discuss the urgency of living, maths to measure happiness and atoms to prove that reincarnation exists. With subjects like anatomy, statistics and quantum physics as backdrops for self discovery and introspection, his pieces has been described as “desire wrapped into logic”, “calmly enlightening”, and a “$100-per-hour shrink”.
Mark has designed and facilitated workshops about creative writing and performance poetry for schools and organizations alike. He has released a science themed poetry chapbook in 2014 called “Near Things” and is currently working on his second which he hopes to release by 2018.
