Seldess’ poetry has been critically acclaimed since it first saw wide exposure in the form of his first collection, Who Opens. He will read from his latest book, Left Having, and give a talk on his compositional process, under the working title of “Inconstants and Variables.”
Jesse Seldess recently relocated to Brooklyn from Karlsruhe, Germany. He is the author of two books, Who Opens (2006) and Left Having (2011), both from Kenning Editions. He has also published chapbooks with Hand Held Editions, Instance Press, Answer Tag Press, and the Chicago Poetry Project Press. His work has recently appeared in the journals The Recluse, EOAGH, Jacket, Little Red Leaves, and out of nothing. Since 2001, he has edited and published Antennae, a journal of experimental writing and language-based performance and music scores.
