She co-edited Biting The Error: Writers Explore Narrative, a book of essays by writers on their own experimental practices (CoachHouse).

Earlier books include The Rosy Medallions (poetry and prose, from Kelsey St Press) and Cold Heaven (plays, from Leslie Scalapino's O Books).
Anselm Berrigan is a poet. An unreconstructed, unreframed, unabashed poet, with all other activities being incidental to the particular choice of being a poet who happens to be a person who writes poems. He is finishing a short manuscript to be published with a short manuscript by John Coletti in a single edition under the title Skasers by Flowers and Cream press sometime in the not too distant future, and would like to stop tinkering with this longish poem in continuous estranged sentences called Primitive State.
