Lisette Auton is a disabled writer, poet, spoken word performer, theatre-maker and creative practitioner.
Based in Darlington, England, Lisette is an award winning poet and one of Penguin Random House’s WriteNow mentees for her children’s novel based on the North-East coast. As a creative practitioner Lisette specialises in working with people whose voices are not fully represented in the mainstream, designing and delivering unique workshops ensuring that the arts are open and accessible to all. Her poetry and spoken word performances focus on disability, mental health and politics, using lyrical techniques to spiral out from the personal to the universal. Lisette uses her platform as a performer, writer and theatre-maker to make the invisible visible.
