Renee Gladman‘s writing and drawings explore the intersections of language (a desire for narrative) and various kinds of architecture. She is the author of eight works of prose and poetry, including the first three novels of the Ravicka Series: Event Factory (2010),The Ravickians (2011), and Ana Patova Crosses a Bridge (2013), all published by Danielle Dutton’s Dorothy Publishing Project. And, this spring, the first of her drawing writing series Prose Architectures will be viewable online at pocketnotes.org. She lives in Providence, RI, and teaches in the Literary Arts Department at Brown University. Born in Halifax, Trish Salah is a writer, activist and assistant professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Winnipeg, where she is organizing a conference on the emergence of Transgender Literatures and Criticism for this May. Her recent writing appears online at The Feminist Wire, and in the anthologies, Selling Sex: Experience, Advocacy, and Research on Sex Work in Canada and Troubling the Line:Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics. She has two poetry books, Wanting in Arabic (TSAR 2002), which last year was re-issued in a new edition, and a new collection, Lyric Sexology, Vol. 1, which is out with Roof Books this spring.
