Hello. I’m a redhead of questionable authenticity, though all my intentions as a pre-raphaelite sprite are sincere.

Currently studying for an AHRC-funded DFA/PhD at the University of Glasgow, entitled, ‘Anthropocene Aesthetics: Tracing Deep Time, Daily Life and Dark Ecology through Critical-Creative Practice’.

Open to collaboration with visual artists and musicians on anything revolving around questions of ecology, time/space, landscapes, hauntology, archive fever, technology, new materialism, mental health.

I’m Poetry and Nonfiction Editor at SPAM Zine and SPAM Press, editor-in-chief at Gilded Dirt and member of A+E Collective. I also write for GoldFlakePaint Magazine. Looking for freelance work in creative writing/reviews/nonfiction and music criticism.

Find me at mariasledmere@outlook.com or maria.spamzine@gmail.com, I’m open to all astrological observations.
