Bio

Bernadette Mayer is an experimental poet, editor, and teacher associated with the New York School writers. For decades her work has brought formal experimentalism into the realm of the domestic by exploring, expanding and exploding what "the domestic" even is. Mayer has also created much-adopted syllabi and exercises to support the teaching of reading and writing, the best known of these being her journal ideas and writing experiments. She regularly taught workshops at St. Mark's Poetry Project in New York City throughout the 70s, and from 1980 - 1984 served as the director. Mayer was also a great publisher and editor of her contemporaries, through 0 to 9 co-edited with Vito Acconci, and United Artists Books and the associated magazine from 1977 - 1983. She has published over 20 books of poetry including Midwinter Day, Sonnets, and most recently, Eating the Colors of a Lineup of Words, a collection of her early books. In 2015 Mayer was named a Guggenheim Fellow.
