Ailish Hopper

I'm the author of Dark~Sky Society (New Issues, 2014), and the chapbook, Bird in the Head (Center for Book Arts, 2005). The narrative I'm presenting at TIP in 2017 is from a book of essays (some drawings, some documentation of collaborations in Baltimore), "Vanish into Form," that are narratives of possibility, that aim to open up space in what has been shall-we-say overdetermined. ie, what is "unthinkable"---and possible. An essay about race and the alienation effect in poetry, "The Gentle Art of Making Enemies," is in Laura McCullough's anthology, A Sense of Regard: Essays on Poetry and Race. Another, "Can a Poem Listen?" about white racism in poetryLand, was in Boston Review. I've received support from the MacDowell Colony, Vermont Studio, and Yaddo, and teach at Goucher College in the Center for Geographies of Justice, and in Creative Writing. I also teach in the MFA in Visual Arts program at UMBC.
