Kaie Kellough is a word-sound systemizer. His systems originate in the inchoate swirl of vowels, consonants, misspellings, shapes, stammerings, and emerge as audio recordings, books, visual entities, volumes of letters, and performances that verse and reverse utterance.
Kaie’s work fuses formal experiment and social engagement. Kaie is the author of two books of poetry Lettricity (Cumulus Press, 2004), and Maple Leaf Rag (Arbeiter Ring Publishing, 2010), and two sound recordings: Vox:Versus (WOW, 2011), and Creole Continuum (HOWL!, 2014). His novel, Accordéon, will appear in the fall of 2016 with Arbeiter Ring Publishing.
