Season Butler

Season Butler

Season Butler is a writer, artist, dramaturg, and lecturer in Performance Studies and Creative Writing. Her writing, research and art practice centre around intersectionality and narratives of otherness, isolation and negotiations with hope. Her recent artwork has appeared in the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Tate Exchange, the Latvian National Museum (Riga) and Hotel Maria Kapel (Netherlands), and she was shortlisted for the SI Leeds Prize for Fiction by Black and Asian women in 2014. Cygnet, Season’s debut novel, was published in spring 2019, and is grounded in her research into identity politics in coming-of-age novels, and social constructs of youth and old age in climate change fiction. It received the 2020 Writer’s Guild award for Best First Novel.
