Rachel Blau DuPlessis, poet, critic, collagist, is the author of Drafts (written 1986 through 2012). Post-Drafts books include Interstices (2014), Graphic Novella (2015), Days and Works (2017), and the forthcoming Numbers (a collage poem from Materialist Press) and Around the Day in 80 Worlds (BlazeVOX). Her critical books include The Pink Guitar, Blue Studios, and Purple Passages—a trilogy on gender, poetry and poetics. She has edited the Selected Letters of George Oppen, and The Oppens Remembered, coedited The Objectivist Nexus, and has written on Oppen, Zukofsky and Niedecker.

Oana Avasilichioaei’s current interests include polylingualisms and intermediary spaces between words, sound and image. She explores the transgressions of these terrains through poetry, translation, performance and sound work. Her five poetry collections include We, Beasts (2012) and Limbinal (2015), a hybrid work on notions of borders. Current projects include a poetic, sonic investigation of tracks/tracking and a libretto (www.oanalab.com).

ZUTIQUE is an occasional reading series focused on poetry, poetics, performance, and sound curated by Michael Nardone.
