Blood of the Air creates a new mythology, repurposing spectacle, stereotype, and song. Lush, lyrical moments give way to fracture, vulnerability, and reinvention. The title poem—one of several found poems—calls attention to stories told in the wake of sexual violence. Formally dexterous and refreshingly bold, the poems in Blood of the Air are urgent, moving, and fiercely imagined. 

Ama Codjoe will be in conversation with poet Aricka Foreman.

Ama Codjoe has been awarded support from the Cave Canem, Saltonstall, Jerome, and Robert Rauschenberg Foundations, as well as from the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop, Crosstown Arts, Hedgebrook, and the MacDowell Colony. She is the recipient of a 2017 Rona Jaffe Writers Award, the Georgia Review’s 2018 Loraine Williams Poetry Prize, a 2019 DISQUIET Literary Prize, a 2019 NEA Creative Writing Fellowship, and a 2020 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship.
