JKS Alumna’s First Chapbook

Congratulations to Kristi Yorks, whose first chapbook in the desert has recently been released by Monkey Puzzle Press! The 30 page poetized narrative follows a young woman caught in the paradoxes of two worlds: the world of finance and business, governed by stocks, numbers, and an unquenchable desire for charts and lines and the world of the desert, breathless and stark in its beauty, demanding in its thirst for life and the serenity which lies beyond the struggle. Congratulations, Kristi!

Kristi is a writer and awkward dreamer who frequently loses herself in the mountain landscapes both within and without her imagination. A graduate of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics and a professor of English composition and literature, Kristi has immersed herself in that fantastic process by which experience becomes words, becoming knowledge—a process she strives to realize and complicate within her work. Her fiction and poetry have appeared in Monkey Puzzle, Fact-Simile, and The Battered Suitcase.
