‘I write to savour the world’s details.’
Angela Trolove is a writer and arts reviewer. She reviews theatre and dance for Theatreview NZ, and visual arts for Art Zone magazine and several Dunedin galleries. Her short stories and poems have appeared in Best New Zealand Poems, Landfall, Takahē, and Blackmail Press. Her narrative non-fiction novel was selected for the NZSA 2020 Complete Manuscript Assessment Programme.
Originally from Waimakariri, Trolove now lives in Ōtepoti. After studying creative writing at the University of Otago and completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Otago Polytechnic, she first worked as a biographer with Nelson Hospice. Over three years in Italy teaching ESOL and picking apples, she fell in love with the challenge of translation. She is currently working on a collection of narrative nonfiction.
Her prose has been described as imagistic, original and engaging.
