Bhanu Kapil is a multi-genre and multi-talented writer writing at the intersection of poetry, prose, and non-fiction. As a teacher, Bhanu focuses on generative, experimental writing practice, with a focus on returning to works or parts of works that were discarded, inert, or tossed aside. Bhanu has written The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers (Kelsey Street Press, 2001), Incubation: A Space for Monsters (Leon Works, 2006/Kelsey Street Press, 2021), humanimal [a project for future children] (Kelsey Street, 2009), Schizophrene (Nightboat Books, 2011), Ban en Banlieue (Nightboat Books, 2015) and How To Wash A Heart (Pavilion Poetry, 2020). Bhanu lived in Colorado for many years, where she taught through earth memory, trauma, healing and narrative at Naropa University. Currently, she teaches for the low-residency MFA in Creative Writing at Goddard College, but lives now in Cambridge, England, where she is an artist by-fellow at Churchill College. In 2020, Bhanu won a Cholmondeley Award from the UK Society of Authors and a Windham Campbell Prize for Poetry from Yale University in recognition of her body of work.
