Carol Novack

Author's Bio

I would say that I'm an outside of the box writer, if I could recall where I put the box. I write and have led workshops in poetic/musical, genre-blending (hermaphroditic) "fictions." Samples of my work, along with reviews, may be found on;; & (links to writings, reviews & interviews).
