Author: Sarah Riggs

Sarah Riggs is a poet working on an "Invitation to the Species" in the form of a podcast/video/book with artists and intellectuals, on the relations of people to each other and the earth. This work draws on her social circles of the last seventeen years with her partner Omar Berrada between Morocco, France and the U.S, and their organization Tamaas, which means "connection" in Arabic. Its new educational U.S. branch is "Earth Arts Justice." EAVESDROP (Chax Press, 2020) is her sixth book of poetry in English. She is also the author of POMME & GRANITE (1913 Press, 2015), AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ENVELOPES (Burning Deck, 2012), 60 TEXTOS (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2010), WATERWORK (Chax Press, 2007), and the translator of Etel Adnan's TIME (Nightboat Books, 2019) along with five other poetry books. Riggs' THE NERVE EPISTLE is forthcoming with Roof Books, 2021. As a professor, she has taught at Columbia and NYU in Paris, as well as Pratt in Brooklyn. Her film productions have shown at the Berlin Film Festival, the Jeu de Paume, the Tate Modern, Anthology Film Archive and other venues. Her drawings and paintings have shown at galleries internationally, and often are in conversation with her writing. Riggs' book of essays Word Sightings (Routledge, 2002) sketched maps for her pursuits, which seem to be about the eye and the pen, and are, it turns out, mostly about listening to others and our collective synergies on this planet.
