Announcing: City Structures by Sophie Grimes
We are pleased to announce our second chapbook of 2013: City Structures by Sophie Summertown Grimes. Mistranslation and travel: Sophie’s poems begin with crossings — spatial, linguistic, intellectual — and travel the tangles. Her chapbook will be published in a small run in the late Spring / early Summer, with a release party and reading in Chicago (TBA). Her bio is below the jump. More details soon!
Sophie Summertown Grimes has lived and traveled in China as an Oberlin Shansi Fellow, and as a Robert Pinsky Global Fellow. She holds a B.A. in Creative Writing from Oberlin College and a Masters of Fine Art in Poetry from Boston University. Her poems have appeared in AGNIonline, 491 Magazine, CRATE, and Spoon River Poetry Review. Second runner-up for the 2011 New Letters Prize for Poetry, she lives and works in Chicago, where she is completing her first full book of poems. She writes poetry reviews for Publishers Weekly, freelance Chicago-centric web content, and contributes to Chicago’s own experimental journal and blog, ANOBIUM.
