Kenneth Goldsmith's writing has been called some of the most "exhaustive and beautiful collage work yet produced in poetry" by Publishers Weekly. The author of nine books of poetry, Goldsmith’s work is also provocative and conceptually ambitious; in Fidget (Coach House, 2000), he set out “to record every move by body made on June 16, 1997” and for Day (The Figures, 2003) Goldsmith retyped an entire issue of the New York Times, part of his project in “uncreativity as a creative practice.” A founding editor of the online archive UbuWeb (, Goldsmith is also the host of a weekly radio show on New York City's WFMU and teaches writing at The University of Pennsylvania, where he is a senior editor of PennSound, an online poetry archive.
