Reviewers: Tripwire is looking for reviewers of new and forthcoming books of poetry, criticism, & other forms of experimental writing and performance. While short form reviews are fine, I’m ideally looking for reviews that go a bit deeper than an extended blurb, perhaps reading the work(s) at hand alongside other books/authors and/or pressing aesthetic/political concerns. Below is a very partial list of authors (as of July 2017) who have new books out, and I’m totally open to suggestions for others. (& if you have a new book out or are a publisher, please let me know). Please email with inquiries or proposals. I can get you free review copies/PDFs in most cases. (crossed out entries are already spoken for):
Because Tripwire is focused on poetics and poet-criticism, I’m especially interested in reviews of the following essay/poetics/poetry collections: SOS-Calling All Black People: A Black Arts Reader (ed Bracey, Sanchez, & Smethurst),
Towards Some Air, (ed De’Ath & Wah), Open Text, V 1-3 (ed Roger Farr), a Guide to Poetics Journal (ed Hejinian & Watten), Angels of the Americlypse (ed Giménez Smith & Chávez), The Force of What’s Possible (ed Hoang & Wilkinson), Aerial 10: Lyn Hejinian issue (ed Smith & Hofer), Essay Press’s Conversation Series, I am a Face: Seven Iranian Poets (translated/ed Alireza Taheri Araghi), Souffles-Anfas: A Critical Anthology (ed. Harrison & Villa-Ignacio), Lisa Samuel’s Over Hear: Six types of poetic experiment in Aortearoa/New Zealand, & others like them.
And books by (in no particular order): Don Mee Choi, Russell Atkins, Keith & Mendi Obadike, Verity Spott, Uljana Wolf, Min K. Kang, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Alicia Cohen, Maged Zaher, Daniel Borzutzky, Luis Felipe Fabre,
