Renee Gladman is the author of numerous books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. She is a writer and artist preoccupied with lines, crossings, thresholds, and geographies as they play out in the interstices of poetry and prose. Her published works include a cycle of novels about the city-state Ravicka and its inhabitants: Event Factory (2010), The Ravickians (2011), Ana Patova Crosses a Bridge (2013), and Houses of Ravicka (2017); and Calamities, a collection of linked essay-fictions.
She has also published monographs of drawings in Prose Architectures (Wave Books, 2017) and, with Fred Moten, One Long Black Sentence (Image Text Ithaca, 2020). Plans for Sentences (Wave Books, 2022) is a collection of ink and watercolor drawings paired with texts.
A graduate of Vassar College and New College of California, Gladman has been awarded fellowships, artist grants, and residencies from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin), among others, and is the recipient of a 2021 Windham-Campbell prize in fiction. She lives in New England.
