Tyrone Williams’ debut collection of poetry, c.c., is just out from San Francisco’s Krupskaya Publishing Collective. This is a volume which Nathaniel Tarn says "bridges more gaps than many words (and careers) thrice as long...the reference, as craft and time demand, is ever to mother language. This [is] uncommon rapture, a burning repetition of home truths, in resolutely future tense." Williams’ work has
appeared in Hambone, Callaloo, The Kenyon Review, Artful Dodge, and elsewhere. Williams teaches literature, literary theory and creative writing at Xavier University and recently co-edited a collection of writings by the homeless in Cincinnati.
