mothership

Manning the bridge of the mothership is Gillian Parrish, a writer, teacher and student of contemplative practices. You can find her articles on teaching (including one on “jedi training”) at Faculty Focus. An essay on writing as betweenness will appear in early 2020 in the anthology Far Villages: Welcome Essays for New and Beginner Poets edited by Abayomi Animashaun. Her writing projects, which mostly get their start by way of walks with a recorder, have appeared in various journals, some linked below. A book of poems, of rain and nettles wove, was published in 2018 by Singing Horse Press. (Review of the book at Talisman.) Long River, (a long labor of love), selected poems of contemporary Chinese poet Yang Jian, with translator Ye Chun, was published in 2018 with Tinfish Press. Parrish has written scholarly articles on ecopoetics in Earthlines and in Ecozon@: European Journal of Literature, Culture and Environment. Creative nonfiction and prose poems have appeared anthologies They Said: A Multi-Genre Anthology Of Contemporary Collaborative Writing (Black Lawrence Press) and Counter-Desecration: A Glossary for Writing Within the Anthropocene (Wesleyan University Press). At the invitation of the DUSIE Kollektiv, a chapbook, cold spell, was written in honor of Counter-Desecration editor Marthe Reed. Fiction is forthcoming in Newfound in late 2019, and a new book of poems, supermoon, filled with guns and children, Funkadelic and string theory, Moomins and musk ox, (all meant as medicine, dare we say prayer), will be published by Singing Horse Press in late 2019.
