Author's Bio

I am an Associate Professor of Asian Studies at Cornell University. I have a Ph. D. from Princeton University, where I wrote a book called Recite and Refuse: 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 I am the author of five chapbooks and have unpublished work available for solicitation. In addition to original poetry, I write essays and book reviews, and am a translator of contemporary Chinese poetry: my translation of the poet Ya Shi, titled Floral Mutter, is available from Zephyr Press. You can follow me on Twitter @nadmussen or read more about me at nickadmussen.com.
