Melissa Buzzeo is the author of For Want and Sound ( Les Figues,
2013), Face (BookThug, 2009), and What Began Us (Leon Works, 2007).
Her poetic work has been greatly charged by a long engagement with
hypnosis, palm reading and a desire for an altered consciousness tied
to the body but radiating outward, which is to say healing. Or
writing.  She graduated from Cornell University and The University of
Iowa's Writing Workshop, and currently teaches both Creative Writing
and Architecture at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. This year she is the
2013 Poet in Residence at Opus Projects Gallery in Chelsea.
