Stephanie Young is a poet, editor, and scholar whose work often hovers at the edge of disciplinary boundaries. She has published five books of poetry and cross-genre writing, most recently Pet Sounds, which won a Lambda Literary Award. Her articles about identity, literary production, and social movements have appeared in The Los Angeles Review of Books, ASAP/J, American Literary History, and Public Books. Her in-progress book with Claire Grossman and Juliana Spahr is a data-driven inquiry into racialized inequities in higher education and literary institutions and how these inequities shape contemporary literary production and distribution.
