I am an Assistant Professor in Asian Studies at Cornell University. I have a Ph. D. from Princeton University, where I wrote a dissertation on contemporary Chinese prose poetry. I'm also a graduate of the MFA program at Washington University in St. Louis, and served as their third-year poet in residence. I am the author of three chapbooks, which are linked below. In addition to original poetry, I write essays and book reviews, and am a translator of contemporary Chinese poetry. I blog occasionally at the Boston Review and am on Twitter @nadmussen.

I am a novelist, short story writer, essayist & kayaker currently working on a YA novel called about the ruinous effects of fracking on a small town in rural PA. I live in Corning, NY & teach LGBT lit, protest lit, graphic novel, disaster lit, YA dystopian lit, & fiction writing to first generation college students at a small & severely resource-deprived state university in the not-very-education-friendly region of north central PA. I’ve given readings & taught workshops across the country. My work has been nominated for a Pushcart & I’ve received residencies at the MacDowell Colony, the Millay Colony, & at Norcroft.
