Rachel Zolf is a cross-border transplant from Toronto to Philadelphia whose writing and other artwork tends to queerly enact how ethics founders on the shoals of the political. Her five books of poetry include Janey’s Arcadia, Neighbour Procedure and Human Resources, all from Coach House Books, and a Selected Poetry is forthcoming. Films Zolf has written and/or directed have shown internationally at such venues as White Cube Bermondsey, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and the Wexner Center for the Arts. Her work has won the Trillium Book Award for Poetry and been a finalist for two Lambda Literary Awards, among other honors. She is nearing completion of a theoretical text called A Language No One Speaks: The Dangerous Perhaps of Monstrous Witness.
