Polari Prize-shortlisted poet Max Wallis has been called the "future of Poetry". He is the author of Modern Love (flipped eye, 2011) and has received two Arts Council grants, one of which funded a research trip to live in polar darkness for a week in solitude. Formerly Harper's Bazaar's roaming poet in residence, Max’s poetry has focused on modelling, fashion, as well as love, intimacy and modern interpretations of sexuality. He was the face of Evian for years and walked for Cerruti and Comme des Garçons in Paris. His book Everything Everything, marks the beginning of a year-long examination of millennial sexuality.
