Pip Adam is a writer who lives in Wellington. She has published fiction, essays, poetry and reviews and has had the opportunity to work in collaboration with artists and their work. Pip has published two books: a collection of short stories for VUP, Everything We Hoped For, and I’m Working on a Building. She works with creative writers at several universities as well as at the Arohata Women’s Prison with the Write Where You Are Collective, and has been making the podcast Better off Read since 2015. She feels like her writing is a way of trying to understand things she doesn’t understand, which she thinks is a process of losing and finding and losing again.
