In the lead-up to the May 29 submission date for The Lifted Brow & non/fictionLAB Prize for Experimental Non-Fiction, we will be profiling each of our amazing judges to give you a little inspiration and help you further understand what the experimental non-fiction genre entails. So far we’ve profiled Dodie Bellamy and Kate Zambreno. Up next is Maria Tumarkin:
Maria Tumarkin writes books (Traumascapes, 2005, Courage, 2007, and Otherland, 2010), as well as reviews, pieces for performance and essays. She has collaborated with visual artists, psychologists and pubic historians, and her work has been published, performed, carved into dockside tiles and set to music.
