His work has appeared in A Book of Music (Minutes Books, 2012) and in various print and online journals; Against the Principles of Its Disappearance is forthcoming from Oxeye Press. To contribute to the flourishing of grassroots communities of exploratory art-making, he's edited Cannot Exist Press and the ephemeral journal Open Face. With marvelous collaborators, he has matched poets from all over with regional writers in the Oscar Presents reading series and its predecessor, the _______-Shaped Readings. Andy, an avid forager, musician and maker of meals, is uncomfortably writing this in the third person.
