Christian Peet is the founder of the acclaimed Tarpaulin Sky Press and is the author of a forthcoming true-crime novel, Angela’s Story, a project that took more than a decade to research and write.
Earlier works include a paperback collection of “postcards,” Big American Trip (Shearsman Books), and two cross-genre chapbooks, Pluto: Never Forget (Interbirth Books) and The Nines (Palm Press). Other texts appear in anthologies such Chain Arts’ Megaphone and Fence Books’ A Best Of Fence, and in various literary magazines online and in print.
Christian received a BA from Bennington College, a MFA from Goddard College, and has taught Creative Writing for the Brooklyn and Hunter Colleges of the City University of New York. He’s grateful to have grown up with amazing friends in the woods of Litchfield County, Connecticut, home of 300 years of his ancestors and home, forever, to his soul.
Via Tarpaulin Sky Press, Christian publishes award-winning hybrid-genre texts and innovative poetry and prose as trade paperbacks, hand-bound books, and an online literary magazine. The press’s fifty-plus titles include such authors as Rebecca Brown, Jennifer S. Cheng, Steven Dunn, Danielle Dutton, Ana Božičević, Jenny Boully, Johannes Göransson, Amy King, Joyelle McSweeney, and Joanna Ruocco.
