Jay Snodgrass

Published December 3, 2011

Jay Snodgrass, SCAP’s 2011-12 Resident Poet, is the author of two books of poetry, Monster Zero (poems about Godzilla) and The Underflower. He has collaborated with SCAP Director Denise Bookwalter on a variety of broadsides and envelope-chapbook projects including Concentrics, an accordion folded broadside, and Jar of Diamonds, an embossed broadside which is folded into an envelope. This work beautifully blends the delicate precision of letterpress, in ink and in text, with the possibility of language on the page in order to demonstrate that the creative process stems from the love of creating beautiful things by distilling emotions, and being honest, as much as it is arriving at a product to be distributed. Jay Snodgrass has generated texts for collaborative graduate and undergraduate book making projects at FAR, and enjoys working with students to help them explore and explode the possibilities of the creative process.
