Just out from Fence Books, Journal of Ugly Sites & Other Journals was selected by Brenda Hillman for the Ottoline Prize and collects notes from Szymaszek’s journals, locally sourced from her life in Brooklyn and the East Village. 

Of her work, the poet Etel Adnan writes that “each poem is what I am looking for: a resonance with a particular location, an intelligence unafraid of its humanity, a sort of desperate adequacy with the people or objects that Szymaszek encounters.”
STACY SZYMASZEK is a poet, editor and arts administrator. She is the author of the books Emptied of All Ships (2005), Hyperglossia(2009), and hart island (2015). Her book A Year From Today will be published in 2017. She is a regular teacher for Naropa University's Summer Writing Program, and mentor for Queer Art Mentorship. Szymaszek is the Director of The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church.
