Aimee Herman is the author of two poetry collections, meant to wake up feeling (great weather for MEDIA, 2014) and to go without blinking (BlazeVOX books, 2012), and a novel Everything Grows is forthcoming from Three Rooms Press. As a poet, musician, and performance artist, Herman uses her work to disembowel the architecture of gender and what it means to queer the body. Herman’s writing has been widely published in the U.S. and internationally in literary journals including Lavender Review, EDUCE, Sous Les Pave, and the Lambda Award-winning anthology Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics (Nightboat Books). Aimee has taught at various universities and colleges included: CUNY Grad Center, St. John’s University (Queens), Malloy College (Long Island), Stoneybrook University (Long Island), City College of New York, and Metro State (CO).
