Long, Slow Process... & New Beginnings

Sometimes, in the space between writing a piece and its and publication, its existence slips my mind.

That's been the case of late as I've been putting finishing touches to long-term projects now seeing the light – essays for The Cinema of the Swimming Pool (on Lucrecia Martel); Screening Nature (on Martel, Apitchatpong Weerasethakul, Tsai Ming Liang and Sarah Turner); the Oxford Handbook of Indigenous American Literature (on Salt's Earthworks series); The Wolf 30 (on Emily Dickinon's envelope poems, and also a personal essay Silence, Singing [pdf here]); and reviews of amazing films like Belle and The Punk Singer – to clear the decks for a new project.

A BOOK. Political Animals: The New Feminist Cinema will be published by IB Tauris in 2015. It's going to be a banner year, with two new poetry collections as well: (O) from Arc Publications in the UK and kaolin or, How Does a Girl Like You Get to be a Girl Like You from Lark Books in the US. So apologies if the website is quiet while I'm writing away. You can follow my Political Animals Tumblr for a preview of the films, ideas and Feminist Godzillas I'll be unleashing next year.
