Kristin P. Bradshaw conducts poetic investigations and observations through writing, letterpress, collage, photography, and sound recording. Her current critical inquiries converge around fragmentation, the tension between immediacy and accessibility in the experience of poetic and visual works, and the state of the word in contemporary visual culture. Her poems have appeared in the New Orleans Review, New American Poetry, Chase Park, and No: a Journal of the Arts. She is a graduate of Brown University’s Literary Arts MFA program, and holds an MA in Religion from the Divinity School at Yale University. She is Associate Professor at Pacific Northwest College of Art teaching in Creative Writing, Intermedia, and the MFA Print Media programs and the Department Head of BFA Creative Writing. Burning Deck’s release of her first book, Apologies, in October 2014, followed the 2005 chapbook, “The Difficult Nature of Contemplation” (Percival House).
