Author's Bio

Anne Gorrick is a writer and visual artist.  

She is the author of eight books of poetry including most recently: Beauty, Money, Luck, etc. for Beginners (Spuyten Duyvil Press, 2019), An Absence So Great and Spontaneous it is Evidence of Light (the Operating System, 2018);  and The Olfactions: Poems on Perfume (BlazeVOX Books, 2017). She collaborated with artist Cynthia Winika to produce a limited edition artists’ book, “Swans, the ice,” she said, funded by the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY and the New York Foundation for the Arts.  She also co-edited (with poet Sam Truitt) In|Filtration: An Anthology of Innovative Writing from the Hudson River Valley (Station Hill Press, 2016).  

With poet Melanie Klein, she curated the reading series Process to Text from 2015 - 2018, which focused on innovative writing from in and around New York’s Hudson Valley.  She previously curated the reading series Cadmium Text from 2006 - 2014 at R&F Handmade Paints in Kingston, NY.  

She also co-curated the electronic poetry journal Peep/Show with poet Lynn Behrendt (www.peepshowpoetry.blogspot.com), which is a “taxonomic exercise in textual and visual seriality.”

From 2005 - 2019, she served on the Board of Trustees at Century House Historical Society, home of the Widow Jane Mine.  CHHS is an all-volunteer organization (www.century house.org) devoted to the historic preservation and investigation through the arts of the now defunct cement industry in Rosendale, NY.

Anne Gorrick lives in West Park, New York.
