Rae Armantrout

There’s almost too much to say about Rae Armantrout, with seven books of poetry, a memoir (True, from Atelos Press), a new collection of poetry (The Pretext, from Green Integer) and a collection of selected poems book about to burst into print next year from Wesleyan. When you finish with those you can go on to A Wild Salience: The Writing of Rae Armantrout (Burning Press) for information on all you’ve just read. And in the meantime, you will have come to Small Press Traffic where she helps us to kick off our 26th season with a thrilling Steadicam view of life’s smallest mishaps and most urgent social tragedies. Or, hang around the campus of CCAC where she has been named Writer-in-Residence for this year. She’ll be the one paying attention to everything and then condensing it into poetic magic.
