Rachel Zolf

Rachel Zolf's writing practice explores interrelated materialist questions concerning memory, history, knowledge, subjectivity, and the conceptual limits of language and meaning. She is particularly interested in how ethics founders on the shoals of the political. Her books of poetry include Janey's Arcadia (2014), a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, the Raymond Souster Memorial Award, and the Vine Awards; Neighbour Procedure (2010); Human Resources (2007), which won the Trillium Book Award for Poetry and was shortlisted for a Lambda Literary Award; Masque (2004), finalist for the Trillium Book Award for Poetry; and Her absence, this wanderer (1999). Among her many collaborations with other artists, she wrote the film The Light Club of Vizcaya: A Women's Picture, directed by New York artist Josiah McElheny, which premiered at Art Basel Miami 2012. She works at the University of Pennsylvania, where she teaches creative writing and fine arts and organizes community projects that harness the power of writing for personal and social change. Find out more on her website:
