Bridie Squires is a writer, producer and performance artist from Nottingham. Previously Editor of LeftLion Magazine, she was appointed as Nottingham Trent University’s first Writer in Residence in 2019 and founded Nottingham spoken-word collective, GOBS, in 2020.
A Mouthy Poets alumnus, Bridie has performed her poetry at London’s Southbank Centre, Karlsruhe’s Staatstheatre, and We Out Here Festival. Bridie was awarded funding from Arts Council England to create Casino Zero – her one-woman loop-station play based on her experiences as a croupier. She was commissioned by BBC Radio 4 for Mardy, a poem for Tongue and Talk: The Dialect Poets, in 2018, and she developed her audio drama Self-checkout for BBC Sounds in 2022. Bridie is self-publishing her debut poetry collection Duck on Bike, in May 2023. Later in the year, she will be collaborating with Nottingham Playhouse to continue developing Casino Zero.
