Sandy Florian

Sandy Florian is the author of five books and one chapbook: Boxing the Compass, On Wonderland and Waste, Prelude to Air From Water, The Tree of No, Telescope and 32 Pedals and 47 Stops. Her most recent book, Boxing the Compass, launched the new Akrilica series, a collaboration between Noemi Press and Letras Latinas headed by Carmen Gimenez Smith and Francisco Aragon, which aims to complicate perceptions of contemporary Latino literature by publishing innovative writing that thwarts stereotypical expectations. Boxing the Compass won the University of Indianapolis Etchings Press Whirling Prize. Florian’s creative work appears in more than 60 international literary journals and the anthologies Beyond the Field and The Americas Anthology of New Writings. Recently, Florian was visiting assistant professor at West Virginia University.
