Poetry. Native American Studies. A handwritten court record offers a forgotten name, a baby cries in the archive: In WINTERING, her second collection of poems, Megan Snyder-Camp composes a disruptive, archive-sourced poetry of witness that challenges the given story of the "Indian vocabularies," indigenous language records Lewis and Clark gathered during their 1804-6 journey. Exploring whiteness, memory and language, WINTERING is a book about the mark our hunger makes.
Megan Snyder-Camp is the author of WINTERING (Tupelo Press, 2016), THE GUNNYWOLF (Bear Star Press, 2016), and THE FOREST OF SURE THINGS (Tupelo Press, 2010). Her poetry has appeared in such magazines as The Antioch Review, The Southern Review, Ecotone and FIELD. She has received support from the Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Djerassi, the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest, the 4Culture Foundation, Willapa AiR, the Richard Hugo House, and Hypatia-in-the-Woods. She lives in Seattle.Author City: SEATTLE, WA USA
