Philip Elliott was born in Dublin, Ireland in the early 90s and it wasn’t long before the world baffled him. His writing can be found in over 50 journals in 10 countries. In 2017 he was nominated for both the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net, and his experimental epistolary novella, Dreaming in Starlight, was published by CTU Publishing Group. He is a winner of the Big Pond Rumours Press Chapbook Prize 2018 for his short story collection Hunger and Hallelujahs, due for publication in June.
Philip is the founder and editor-in-chief of international print, digital and online literary magazine Into the Void, which won Best Magazine in the 2017 Saboteur Awards, and was included in ‘Nine New Lit Mags You Need to Read’ as one of “nine new journals that appeared on the scene within the past couple of years and have already made their mark on the literary landscape” in the November/December 2016 Issue of Poets & Writers. Into the Void has since received excellent reviews in The Review Review and NewPages.
Philip has a degree in Ancient Classics, and prizes above all writing that is simple, raw, and True. He is passionate about punk rock, veganism, and beautiful sentences, and lives in Toronto, Canada, with his wife and their spoiled pug.
