Author's Bio

Joseph A. W. Quintela writes. Poems. Stories. On Post-its. Walls. Envelopes. Cocktail napkins. Twitter. Facebook. YouTube. Anything he gets his hands on, really. He currently actualizes the The Poetry App Project, a collaborative engagment that seeks to conceptualize and dseign applications that facilitate generative poetics. As the curator at Deadly Chaps Press, he publishes several series of chapbooks, a weekly eReview (Short, Fast, and Deadly), and a dark-horse publishing collective (rIgor mort.US). His work at Sarah Lawrence College revolves around integrating the disparate yet rapidly dovetailing fields of Conceptual Poetry and Ecocriticism. Thus he is an acolyte of intra-action, hash tags, and the Oxford comma.
