From one birthday to another birthday (2011 – 2012), Jen Hofer made a cut-up poem using the front page of the newspaper in the city where she woke on each day. The result is a beautiful portrait of what “daily” means when tempered with poetic, political and personal endeavor. This larger than normal LRL chapbook features custom-printed fabric and color facsimiles of a selection of Hofer’s poems.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

JEN HOFER is a Los Angeles-based poet, translator, social justice interpreter, teacher, knitter, book-maker, public letter-writer, urban cyclist, and co-founder with John Pluecker of the language justice and literary activism collaborative Antena (www.antenaantena.org). A documentary piece Antena wrote about our work at Project Row Houses in Houston can be read on The Conversant at The Volta website (www.thevolta.org), and our “Manifesto for Discomfortable Writing” can be read online at Floor (http://floorjournal.com). Her latest translations include the homemade chapbook En las maravillas/In Wonder (Libros Antena/Antena Books, 2012) and Ivory Black, a translation of Negro marfil by Myriam Moscona (Les Figues Press, 2011), which won prizes in 2012 from the Academy of American Poets and PEN American Center. Her recent and forthcoming books of poetry and translation are available from a range of autonomous small presses, including Action Books, Atelos, Dusie Books, Insert Press, Kenning Editions, Litmus Press, Palm Press, and Subpress. Most recently she has been hand-sewing quilted poems; a documentary photo-essay about the piece “Uncovering: A Quilted Poem Made from Donated and Foraged Materials from Wendover, Utah” can be viewed at http://www.alligatorzine.be/pages/101/zine127.html.
