Author's Bio

Amina Cain is the author of I Go To Some Hollow (Les Figues Press), a collection of stories that revolves quietly around human relationality, landscape, and emptiness, and an upcoming chapbook called Tramps Everywhere (Insert Press/PARROT Series). She is also a curator and a teacher of writing/literature. A recording of her story “Attached to a Self” was included in the group show A Diamond in the Mud at Literaturhaus Basel in Switzerland in 2008, and last summer her work was featured at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) as part of NOT CONTENT, a series of text projects curated by Les Figues. A chaplet, "Hunger," was recently published by Belladonna*, and work is forthcoming in [out of nothing] and Sous Rature. Several of her stories have been translated into Polish on MINIMALBOOKS, and a French translation of “Black Wings” is just out in Jet d’encre. She lives in Los Angeles.
