Articulating the search for a cohesive American identity, Matthew Cooperman’s poetry attends to the slippery question of place: its history in personal and cultural memory and its tenuous constitution as family, nature, love, and community. Cooperman uses the metphor of travel to invoke the necessary motion and distance required to look back at one’s past.

Matthew Cooperman recently completed a doctorate at Ohio University. He is currently a Writing Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. His poems, essays, and interviews have appeared in Black Warrior Review, Field, Denver Quarterly, The Journal, Chicago Review, Sonora Review, and Rolling Stock. He is a founding editor of Quarter After Eight, a journal of prose and commentary.
