Simon Cutts – Readings

Simon Cutts & Nancy Kuhl
Monday, May 11, 2009, 8:00 pm

Simon Cutts is a poet, artist and editor who began Coracle in the early 1970s, having worked with small publications from the 1960s. He began making work through concrete poetry, a form of visual presentation of the poem on the page. Now he sees book-form as the physical metaphor for the poem itself. The Coracle Press Archives are held in the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. A recent book of essays, Some Forms of Availability, was published last year by Granary Books, New York. Nancy Kuhl’s first full-length collection of poems, The Wife of the Left Hand, was published in 2007 by Shearsman Books. She is the author of The Nocturnal Factory, a chapbook published in 2008 by Ugly Duckling Presse. Another chapbook, Means of Securing Houses &c. from Mischief by Thunder and Lightning, is forthcoming from Propolis Press. She is co-editor of Phylum Press, a small poetry publisher and Curator of Poetry of the Yale Collection of American Literature at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
