Dirty Confetti is a small press and forum for collaborative projects between women of all ages. It was set up by the writers Alice Maddicott (UK) and Ana Seferovic (Serbia) who felt there was a gap for a publisher focusing on the sort of books they love to read and create – work that blurs the lines between poetry, prose and visual art; work that seeks to be constantly evolving and to put collaboration at its core. It is also a digital archive for their more experimental and site-specific projects.
Alice is a published poet, fiction and children’s screenwriter from Somerset with over 12 years experience designing and running creative projects in schools, museums and communities. As well as with Ana she enjoys collaborating with artists and musicians and has had many site-specific writing commissions. She has also exhibited visual art incorporating her text at home and abroad where she won a commission for the Bucharest Metro System. She was recently writer in residence for the 20th Bath International Literature Festival. www.alicemaddicott.com
Ana is an award winning poet and playwright from Belgrade. As well as three volumes of her own poetry she has contributed to and edited poetry anthologies. She has performed extensively across Europe.
Ana and Alice regularly perform together including at international poetry festivals. Their collaborative poetry book The City was published in 2014 by Auropolis press.
