About the author

Jill Magi's text-image projects document border-crossings between the body and public space, and between ideologies inscribed and experience as it is lived. Her projects combine research with the following forms: poetry, fiction, the essay, drawing, stitching, photography, and collage. She is the author of LABOR (Nightboat Books), SLOT (Ugly Duckling Presse), Cadastral Map (Shearsman), Torchwood (Shearsman), Threads (Futurepoem), as well as the chapbooks Furlough/Die for Love (Ed. Press), Poetry Barn Barn! (2nd Avenue), Cadastral Map (Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs), Shroud, a collaboration with Jen Hofer, and numerous small, handmade books. Her essays have been anthologized in The Eco-Language Reader (Portable Press/Nightboat Books) and Letters to Poets (Saturnalia Books), and visual works have been exhibited at the Textile Arts Center, the Brooklyn Arts Council Gallery, the International Meeting of Visual Poetry, apexart, and Pace University. In 2011 she was artist-in-residence at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn, New York, and from 2006-07, she was a writer-in-residence with Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She has taught writing, literature, and art with the City University of New York, The New School University, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Goddard College, and Columbia College Chicago. In 2013 she joined the writing faculty at New York University in Abu Dhabi. For her small press work, she was recognized by Poets & Writers Magazine as one of the 50 most inspiring authors in 2010.
