Danny Hutley performing “The Closest Thing” at Slamalamadingdong, October 27, 2016.

Danny Hutley is a writer from the UK, who has been living in Melbourne for three years. His poetry is an attempt to express both distance and connection, but by 2am ends up confused on some dance-floor. He was highly commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers John Shaw Nielson Poetry Award, and in the Ex Libris Port Fairy Short Story Competition. He is currently working on a collection of short stories. — @drhutley
