Jeremy Atherton-Lin writes memoir and criticism, or something in-between. He has been identified by author Olivia Laing as “one of the best writers I’ve encountered, remaking the world sentence by immaculate sentence”.
Raised in the U.S., Atherton-Lin studied theatre at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and now lives in London, where he received the master’s degree in critical writing from the Royal College of Art (RCA).
His essays have appeared in Art Review, Index, Noon, Art Licks, Dirty Furniture, Surface, Beaux Arts and Blithe House Quarterly.
He is currently an Associate Lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts and Associate Editor of the journal Failed States.
He was shortlisted for the 2018 Fitzcarraldo Essay Prize for Gay Bar, which considers endangered venues alongside shifting identities.
