cahoodaloodaling is excited to announce that Tiegan Dakin is joining our staff as a feature contributor! Tiegan will be curating a quarterly interview series of spoken word poets focused on poetry which does important work with social injustices. Look for her first interview in our upcoming issue, Trigger Warning, due out April 20th!
Tiegan Dakin is an emerging teenage writer and artist currently residing in Australia. Her work has previously appeared in Blue Bonnet Review, Squawk Back, The Legendary, and Gravel Literary Journal. She has also been shortlisted for the Poetry Object 2014 and 2015 contests.
Tiegan blogs on her blog, Harbour, and writes articles for Perth-based Avenoir Magazine in between her studies.
If she’s not sitting in front of her computer at home, you will probably find Tiegan riding her bike around town or visiting the local library to borrow books like I’m Watching You by Karen Rose, or a more challenging literary classic.
Brenda Shaughnessy’s poem, “Artless,” perfectly sums up her life story.
