Amy Catanzano is an American poet from Boulder, CO. Michael Palmer describes her work as "a poetic vision of multiple orders and multiple forms, of a fluid time set loose from linearity, and an open space that is motile and multidimensional." Her interests lie in avant-garde literary forms, the intersection of science and literature, and in cross-genre and cross-cultural texts.
