About Irene Watts

One could write a linear piece in which a person wakes, has breakfast and starts a day the likes of which is entirely founded in reality. Sure, the plot that unfolds in this story could evoke some little hint to the mystery of being… I prefer surrealistic metaphor, and I like it funny.

Absurdist, collagist, animator, wanderer. Works have been published and displayed in various small venues virtual and not.

Review by: White Sun Press on Jan. 30, 2011 :
Irene Watts' writing always seems to transport me into a mythical world, with odd and neurotic creatures somehow endearing in their vulnerabilities and inherent humanity. Fragments of a whole, her Appetite and Sentiment in the Crow's Nest seem to make up the primary characters of a single being lurching through the vast ocean of a wider consciousness, occasionally boarded by a blind and malicious being like Montag, or watched carefully by the more compassionate birds. I find her work charming...and the visual accompaniment only lends to the poetry.
