Bronwen Manger is a poet and spoken word artist, located in Box Hill. Bronwen performs her work at readings and events around Melbourne (often accompanied by her identical twin Emily Polites), and her poems have been published in various journals and magazines, including Best Australian Poems 2012, The Age, Going Down Swinging, Triptych Poets 2, and page seventeen. Bronwen has performed her poetry live on radio (Triple J, 3CR and Phoenix FM), and she has appeared on Channel 31’s Red Lobster TV program. Bronwen’s poetry varies widely, from rambunctious rhymes to contemplative lines, and she aims to tempt the audience into an opulent web of passion and puzzlement, strung between wildflowers and grenades, paradise and apocalypse, decadence and deprivation.
