Emily Izsak : part one

Emily Izsak is the author of Whistle Stops: A Locomotive Serial Poem (Signature Editions, 2017) and Stickup (shuffaloff/Eternal Network, 2015).

What are you working on?

I am currently working on a chapbook for above/ground press tentatively titled “25.” The press is turning 25 this year and I turned 25 in January, so I’m writing 25 poems on being 25. I am also working on a full-length collection about avian mating dances.
