I have been working in publishing since the early 1990s and am currently publisher of Mindmade Books (formerly Seeing Eye Books) and co-editor of Otis Books | Seismicity Editions.
Mindmade Books is a micro-press publishing chapbooks of modern and contemporary poetry. I created this imprint in 1997 and have brought out more than 70 titles to date by poets such as Nicole Brossard, Norma Cole, Emily Kendal Frey, Mostafa Nissabouri, Raymond Queneau, Chika Sagawa, Giovanna Sandri, Hendrik Werkman, and many others. For further information, including a complete catalog, reviews, a list of forthcoming titles, etc., visit mindmadebooks.com.
Otis Books | Seismicity Editions is a publishing project of the Graduate Writing program at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. The press was founded in 2003 by Paul Vangelisti and myself, and has published some 25 titles since that time. They include works of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction in the English original and in translation. Authors published include Erik Anderson, Robert Crosson, Mohammed Dib, Norman Klein, Dennis Phillips, Severo Sarduy, and Adriano Spatola.
