Nicolette Wong is a poet, indie lit publisher, magician and dancer. Her poetry chapbook, Stone Bride Madrigals, was published in December 2013 by corrupt press (Paris). Since 2011 she has been running A-Minor Magazine, an online magazine featuring prose, poetry and artwork. In 2012 she founded A-Minor Press, an independent press publishing full-length collections of poetry and mixed genre work by international authors.
Nicolette Wong on Stone Bride Madrigals:
“On a snowy night in Brooklyn, I met the statue who was to appear in many of the poems I’d go on to write… My statue walked through all kinds of disintegration. Sometimes she saw death. These poems are her songs.”
In her recent work, Wong has been re-creating Chinese myths — like the yellow springs where the dead wander, and stories of defying fate/god — as well as drawing inspirations from the work of Japanese avant-garde and New Wave filmmakers like Shuji Terayama and Hiroshi Teshigahara.
