Who is Joyelle McSweeney?

Poet, novelist, publisher, and critic Joyelle McSweeney explores the way that writing is impacted by and transcends genre, language, and medium.

What does she write?

While McSweeney may be best known for her award winning poetry, her books span the range of literary genres, including the novel Flet, a work of speculative fiction, which has been compared to iconic novels like 1984 and Brave New World.

McSweeney is also co-founder of Action Yes Online Quarterly, an online journal that includes diverse forms of creative writing and visual art, and Action Books, a press focused on publishing poetry and prose translations.

She is the author of seven books of poetry and prose including, most recently, Salamandrine, 8 Gothics (stories and a play), and Percussion Grenade (poems and a play).

Where does she live and teach?

McSweeney is associate professor of English and the director of creative writing at University of Notre Dame.
