*Dodie Bellamy*’s writing focuses on sexuality, politics, and narrative
experimentation, challenging the distinctions between fiction, essay, and
poetry.  Her most recent collection is *When the Sick Rule the World,* from
Semiotext(e).  Her chapbook, “The Beating of Our Hearts,” was published as
a chapbook in conjunction with the 2014 Whitney Biennial.  A recent essay
on radicality appeared in the Philosophy section of the 25th anniversary
issue of the French fashion magazine *Purple.*  With Kevin Killian she
edited for Nightboat Books *Writers Who Love Too Much: **New Narrative
1977-1997.*


*Kevin Killian is a San Francisco-based writer and artist.  His books
include Impossible Princess, Action Kylie, three volumes of  Selected
Amazon Reviews, and Tweaky Village.  Recent projects include a
novel, Spreadeagle, and Tagged, nude portraits of poets, artists, writers,
musicians, etc.  Soon you will see Fascination (in two volumes from
Semiotexte), Killian’s collected memoirs edited by Andrew Durbin; a book of
plays from the San Francisco Poets Theater (Stage Fright), from Kenning
Editions; and a volume of Jack Spicer’s letters (Wesleyan) edited by KK and
Kelly Holt.  Meanwhile, Joco Seria in France has issued a bilingual
translation of Killian’s “elements” poems called Les éléments.  *
