Kenning Editions is pleased to announce the creation of a rotating, three-year position as Chief Editor, beginning with Daniel Borzutzky. Daniel will be working to forward the mission of the press by developing between 1-2 book projects annually, between 2017-2020. Then, he will pass the baton.
Kenning Editions is a 501c3 non-profit corporation devoted to publishing new and archival writing that cultivates affiliations across aesthetic, linguistic, and social milieus. The Chief Editor sustains the press’ ongoing mission to develop interest areas in art, poetry, poetics, fiction, and non-fiction in a “radical modernist” lineage, broadly conceived.
Daniel Borzutzky’s books and chapbooks include, among others, In the Murmurs of the Rotten Carcass Economy (2015), Memories of my Overdevelopment (2015); Bedtime Stories for the End of the World! (2015), Data Bodies (2013), The Book of Interfering Bodies (2011), and The Ecstasy of Capitulation (2007). He has translated Raúl Zurita’s The Country of Planks (2015) and Song for his Disappeared Love (2010), and Jaime Luis Huenún’s Port Trakl (2008). His work has been supported by the Illinois Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Pen/Heim Translation Fund. He lives in Chicago.
