***

Amaranth Borsuk’s most recent book is Pomegranate Eater (Kore Press, 2016), a collection of poems. Previous books include Handiwork (Slope Editions, 2012), selected by Paul Hoover for the 2011 Slope Editions Poetry Prize; and Tonal Saw (The Song Cave, 2010), a chapbook-length erasure poem. Abra (1913 Press, 2016), a book of mutating poems created with Kate Durbin, received an NEA-sponsored Expanded Artists’ Books grant from the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago and was recently released as a limited-edition book with a free iPad/iPhone app created by Ian Hatcher. Her collaboration As We Know (Subito Press, 2014), selected by Julie Carr for the Subito Prize, reshapes sixty entries from Andy Fitch’s summer diary into a collective confessional/constructivist collage that foregrounds the tensions of authorship. The two have extended this project through a series of photographs, experimental videos, and sound recordings.

Andy Fitch’s most recent books are Sixty Morning Walks, Sixty Morning Talks and (with Amaranth Borsuk) As We Know. Ugly Duckling Presse will soon release his eBook Sixty Morning Walks. With Cristiana Baik, he is currently assembling the Letter Machine Book of Interviews. He has dialogic books forthcoming from 1913 Press and Nightboat Books. He founded the interview-based journal The Conversant, edits Essay Press, teaches in Wyoming’s MFA program, and directs the English Department’s MA program.
