Adelle Stripe is a poet and novelist from Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. In 2006, alongside Tony O'Neill and Ben Myers she formed possibly the first literary movement spawned via a social networking site, the Brutalists, who the BBC described as a 'group of young writers with a back-to-basics approach to poetry.' [1]

Noted as a 'kitchen sink realist' poet by the Spanish daily newspaper ABC, [2] Stripe is affiliated with the Offbeat generation, and has published three poetry collections; Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid, Cigarettes in Bed and Dark Corners of the Land. Stripe's Brutalist works include Brutalism 1: Nowhere Fast [3] and Brutalism 2: Cheap Thrills Issue 24 of Mineshaft Magazine. A commission for Hull UK City of Culture 2017, The Humber Star, was performed as part of John Grant's North Atlantic Flux and was described by the Financial Times as a work of 'fantastic depth and poignancy.'[4]

Her debut novel based on the life and work of Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar, Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, is published by Fleet. [1] It was shortlisted for the Gordon Burn Prize [2] and received the Society of Authors' K Blundell Trust Award for Fiction.[3]
