July Westhale

About Author

July Westhale is a digital publisher, translator, writer, and educator, in addition to being a co-founding editor of PULP Magazine. July is the author of "Trailer Trash", which won the 2016 Kore Press Book Award, and "Via Negativa", which Publishers Weekly gave a starred review and wrote: "With subtlety and skill, Westhale reminds the reader that sensory experience is irrevocably changed once it is relayed in language." She also has a salty collection of chapbooks with very inventive names.

In the highest honor of her life, Booklist once wrote: "Westhale's poetry seems accompanied with a tuning fork’s pitch, a heightened, pressing, weaponized immediacy. Whatever she faced to earn that ability would have killed a lesser mortal, we can be sure."

She's gonna be honest: her cat, Pig, writes all of her best stuff.
