Justin Cox

Justin Cox’s recent work catalogs ecological and social impacts of industrial agriculture in rural Iowa. Riffing on necropastoral, visionary, and localized poetics, these poems propose a cottage corrosive. They’re especially concerned with living-with-animals in landscapes of runoff and hedge.

Justin Cox’s writing has appeared in Annulet: A Journal of Poetics, The Canary, Chicago Review, Denver Quarterly, jubilat, Mercury Firs, Tagvverk, and elsewhere. Justin teaches at the University of Iowa and has been a fellow at the International Institute of Modern Letters in Wellington, New Zealand.
