Biography 

Ink and Ink and Flesh and Length, Anne F. Walker's sixth poetry book, is contracted to come out at the London Book Fair, March 2021. Her previous full-length books include Six Months’ Rent, Pregnant Poems, Into the Peculiar Dark, The Exit Show, and American Urban Poetics. Her poetry chapbook was when the light of any action ceases. The poetry has won Eisner Prizes at UC Berkeley and Canada Council Arts Grants among other honors.  She completed interdisciplinary doctoral work in American Urban Poetics at UC Berkeley in 2007 and—after teaching elsewhere for a full Chinese zodiac cycle— returned to support student writers here. She also assists Omnidawn Publishing through poetry contest and conference support.
