Polari Prize-shortlisted poet Max Wallis has been called the “future of poetry”. He is the author of Modern Love (flipped eye, 2011) and has received two Arts Council grants, one of which funded a research trip to live in polar darkness for a week in solitude. Formerly Harper’s Bazaar’s “roaming poet in residence”, Max’s poetry has focused on modelling, fashion, as well as love, intimacy and modern interpretations of sexuality.
As a model he has worked for Cerruti, Comme des Garçons, Jack Wills and many more. For a time he was also the face of Evian water. His new book Everything Everything, soon to be released, is the beginning of a year-long examination of millennial sexuality. He is currently finishing his novel, The London Council, which is about an organisation that prevents demons breaking into our world from Hell. It has been described as the book ‘everyone wants’.
