Cat Chong’s Plain Air: An Apology in Transit is a pamphlet in flux, a diary like inner-monologue without a single full stop, charting the speaker’s journeys from A to B yet evoking a bigger change, as the speaker leaves behind student life and wanders into the wider world. ‘Plain Air...’ contains meditations on disability, opioid use, carbon emissions, food waste and veganism backdropped by extinction rebellion protests and the songs of Oh Wonder. It’s a pamphlet of quiet courage, resonant and resolutely rooted in the now.


Cat is a poet, publisher, and proud queer crip, whose durational work flails wildly between conceptual and confessional tendencies. They’re a graduate of Royal Holloway’s Poetic Practice MA and a current PhD student at NTU, Singapore. They’ve appeared in numerous anthologies of poetry, and their debut pamphlet Plain Air: An Apology in Transit (2021) was recently published with Broken Sleep Books; they’re currently working on their debut collection.
