A dynamic collection of essays addressing the question of accessibility in experimental writing

Is there any avant-garde? What’s at stake when 100 writers think through issues of accessibility and audience? This is a book comprised of answers—to these questions and their offspring—as various and contradictory as its contributors, ranging from Eileen Myles, Lyn Hejinian, and Joyelle McSweeney to Blake Butler, Jenny Boully, and Rikki Ducornet, among dozens of others. The results here provide discrepant engagements on the most pressing questions of the literary, the political, and the force of what's possible for writers in the 21st Century.

LILY HOANG is the author of the books Unfinished, The Evolutionary Revolution, Changing (recipient of a PEN Beyond Margins Award), and Parabola. She teaches at New Mexico State University at Las Cruces. JOSHUA MARIE WILKINSON is the author of several books including Selenography and Swamp Isthmus. He lives in Tucson, where he teaches at the University of Arizona.
