AMONG MARGINS: CRITICAL
& LYRICAL WRITING ON AESTHETICS
(co-editor | Ricochet Editions, 2016)




This book-length autotheoretical hybrid manuscript addresses issues including violence, misogyny, bigotry, power, privilege – but also love and small daily occurrences. This is through an engagement with facts, poetry, film, philosophy, media, and personal experience.

An extended excerpt is in the chapbook With Lightness & Darkness and Other Brief Pieces (Essay Press). Others are in DIAGRAM, The Elephants, Salt Hill Journal, and Seneca Review, and forthcoming in BOMB.

This anthology is a collection of some of the most exciting voices in the field of writing, art, and activism. Each contributor considers different aspects of aesthetics, from what beauty means to them to how disability has informed their practice. Here artists and writers dive deep into how notions of identity, language, and history play out in their work.

Includes writing from Kazim Ali, CAConrad, Mary Gaitskill, Carmen Giménez Smith, Brenda Hillman, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Eileen Myles, Hoa Nguyen, Alice Notley, Simone White, and many others.
