About the author:
Kat van Loon is a bewitching spinner of fantastic fiction, sordid stories, charming characters, and powerful poetry. Zie is one half of the team Kat & Wolff, and on occasion zie dresses up like Kara "Starbuck" Thrace and avoids arrest for disorderly conduct.

While not writing, Kat can be found baking, knitting, crafting, subverting the heteronormative, gender-binarist paradigm, and killing filthy Cylons.


Authored by Katje van Loon
Edition: 3

A collection of poems by Katje van Loon ranging from the personal to the political, the religious to the romantic. These poems span over a decade of Katje's writing life and are a snapshot of who zie used to be. glasstown is Kat's first collection of poetry.

"Katje van Loon is the clear, forthright voice of a generation as hooked on poetry as any in history. By turns yearning, outraged, wistful, and funny, these poems won't let us get away with forgetting the past or denying the present. Her muscular command of language demonstrates what it means to be a young word-wrighter today. Poetry's future rests in good hands."
-Kaimana Wolff, La Chiripa

"Katje van Loon is a runaway who not only clearly sees what she's fleeing, she definitely knows what she's seeking: a place where the world makes better sense and writing really can make, enrich, and save your life. Her instruments are ones "of soul and sass," and her good work will thoroughly kick that part of your anatomy that rhymes with the latter as she wrings your brain with necessary thought. Don't be glancing around as you read; she's speaking to you."
-Eric Shaffer, author of Living at the Monastery, Working in the Kitchen
