Michael Tod Edgerton is the author of the poetry book Vitreous Hide, a finalist for the Colorado Prize, Nightboat Books, and Omnidawn first book awards, among others, before being published by Lavender Ink in January of 2013. Cole Swensen wrote of Vitreous Hide that it is “a book of big ideas and big feeling, yet carried so lightly on its lyric weave that it becomes almost weightless.” For Kevin Killian, “the gay erotics of this work…have no equivalent in modern American poetry.” His poems have appeared as the winner of the Boston Review and Five Fingers Review annual contests, and in Coconut, Denver Quarterly, Drunken Boat, EOAGH, New American Writing, New Orleans Review, Sonora Review, and Word For/Word, among other journals. Tod’s current project, “what most vividly (a choral work),” uses a questionnaire to collect responses which he then edits and transforms, collaging them with his own responses to compose polyvocal poems and multiply-minded lyric meditations on life and art. You can read more about and participate in “what most vividly” by visiting WhatMostVividly.com, and you can find his general author site at MichaelTodEdgerton.blogspot.com. Tod holds an MFA from the Program in Literary Arts at Brown University and will very soon have his PhD in English and Creative Writing from the University of Georgia. A native of Lexington, KY, he lives in Atlanta with his partner, Greg, and their antisocial cat, Penelope.
