14 Billion years ago an infinitely dense and massive singularity exploded, creating the universe. Then nothing much happened. In 1980 The Empire Strikes Back came out and Randall Stephens was born.

He writes poetry about other poetry, cycling, sexuality, masculinity, dinosaurs and your boyfriend. People have called Randall controversial. Randall has called people losers, they’re both right.

Randall is currently living in Denial, and has toured extensively through other emotional states throughout Australia, as well as in New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia and Borneo. Also competed in slams in London and New York, but didn’t do very well so don’t tell him I mentioned that.

His work’s been published by Australian Poetry’s online journal Sotto and broadcast on 3RRR and 3CR radio. Randall has served as Committee President of the Melbourne Poets Union, helping to organise, curate and host regular monthly readings.

His newly re-jigged album Product is now available on Bandcamp with a third of the proceeds being donated to Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. Meanwhile, he continues blogging poetry at Tales Told by an Idiot. He also hates re-writing his bio, and has vowed not to do so again for a while.

Randall appears in Little Raven One and A Storytelling of Ravens: The Best of Little Raven Publishing 2011 – 2014.
