KIM VODICKA is “the spokesbitch of a degeneration”—“…a softer-spoken, more genteel Lydia Lunch,” according to The Houston Press—and the author of four full-length poetry collections, including The Elvis Machine (CLASH, 2020) and Dear Ted (Really Serious Literature, forthcoming in 2022). She is also the author of several chapbooks, including a poetic comic book, an EP of sound poems on seven-inch vinyl, and an illustrated book of poetry. Her poems, prose, and visual art have been featured in Spork, Luna Luna Magazine, The Thought Erotic, Forbidden Futures, Best American Experimental Writing, and elsewhere. For the past decade, she has toured the country performing sound poetry in bookstores, dive bars, art galleries, ’50s diners, pinup clubs, vintage clothing shops, rooftops, and places of worship. Originally from South Louisiana, she currently lives in Memphis, Tennessee, with her beloved cat, Lula.
