Squatters 🏠


PTK fully supports squatting rights. So much so, we think we have a few hanging out in our basement who occasionally surprise us with poems in the comments sections! Below is an archive of the work from our poet in residence squatters: Eliot Duncan, Wilhelmina Welsch and Winifred Wong. ✍️

Eliot Duncan

Who is Eliot? Well, according to his “official” author bio, Eliot is "a US-born writer and artist. He is the cofounder of the international queer collective Slanted House and a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop”. And by “official” author bio we mean like, official official because ELIOT PUBLISHED A BOOK. PONYBOY is “an evocative debut novel of trans-masculinity, addiction, and the pain and joy of becoming“.

Wilhelmina Welsch

A former high-potential young author 😅 selected in the Berliner Festspiele in 2001 and 2003. I refused to study literature, don’t have a Masters of Fine Arts and regret it a bit today. Part of the poetry collective "The Invisible College“ led by Ariana Reines since early 2020. In everyday life I do something with data and live in Geneva while being a part-time surfer. I mostly write in English at @iamnewintown.

Winifred Wong

Heya! Call me Winnie! 31/F from Singapore. I like to play video games and sing out loud in the shower. Oh, and write poetry of course. Thanks for having me here, PTK babes! 😘
