The Poetry Project

Ted Rees

Ted Rees is a poet and essayist who lives and works in Philadelphia. His first book of poetry, In Brazen Fontanelle Aflame (Timeless, Infinite Light 2018), was described by Publishers Weekly as "a lyrical stream of consciousness that congeals in a sort of hybrid queer, ecopoetic, intertextual manifesto." His second book, Thanksgiving: A Poem is forthcoming from Golias Books this spring, and chapbooks include the soft abyss, The New Anchorage, and Outlaws Drift in Every Vehicle of Thought. He teaches at Temple and other area institutions.
