Jennifer Scappettone is the author of From Dame Quickly, Killing the Moonlight: Modernism in Venice, and several chapbooks. Exit 43, an archaeology of the Superfundament and opera of pop-up pastorals, is in progress for Atelos Press, with a letterpress palimpsest, A Chorus Fosse, coming soon from Compline. She edited and translated Locomotrix: Selected Poetry and Prose of Amelia Rosselli, and is at work on translating a 1944 F.T. Marinetti “aeronovel or aeropoem”; she just launched PennSound Italiana, a new sector of the archive devoted to Italian poetry that she curates. Her most recent work is Leave Loom, a garbage documentary stanza woven at WUHO Gallery in Hollywood. She lives in Chicago and sometimes elsewhere, including here.
