"Fuhrer is a singular talent"
-After the Pause
Hi, my name is Erik. My pronouns are they/he.
If you need me, you can find me watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files, or Freaks and Geeks.
I am the author of 6 books of poetry, including Eye, Apocalypse (forthcoming from Spuyten Duyvil Press later this year). My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best Microfictions, and Best of the Net, and has been an honorable mention for Survision's inaugural James Tate Chapbook Prize.
I hold an MFA from Notre Dame, where I was a Princeton INCH scholar and Presidential Fellow, and am currently a Ph.D. student in creative writing at the University of Glasgow and a graduate certificate student in screenwriting at Missouri State University.
I am a founding editor of hush lit: a journal of noise , a journal of experimental writing and image.
Most of my recent creative and academic work focuses on ecological investigations as well as human and nonhuman interfaces. Representatives of this work have been published in Mosaic: An Interdisciplinary Critical Journal and Terse Journal.
My 6th book of poetry and collage, Eye Apocalypse, will be published by Spuyten Duyvil Press later this year.
My partner, Kimberly Androlowicz (she/her/hers), and I co-created the poetry books in which I take myself hostage (Spuyten Duyvil Press, 2021), not human enough for the census (Vegetarian Alcoholic Press, 2019), with her providing the art and me the text.
I am also the author of three additional poetry collections, all of which leverage poetic erasure: every time you die, which includes art by Marcel Herms, At Root, an erasure of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, (Alien Buddha Press, 2019, 2020), and VOS, an erasure of Virginia Woolf's A Voyage Out (Yavanika Press). The latter two books include my own digital art.
