S. Brook Corfman (b. 1991, Chicago, IL) is a poet, playwright, teacher, and scholar. He is a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, where he completed an MFA in poetry and currently teaches courses in composition, creative writing, and literature. He has received fellowships from Lambda Literary & the University of Pittsburgh, participated in three collaborations with visual artists, co-run a reading series, and was the editor-in-chief of Hot Metal Bridge, Pitt's online literary magazine.
His full-length manuscript, Luxury, Blue Lace, explores gender formation and the effects of repressed knowledge. It has been a finalist for the Cleveland State University Poetry Center's First Book Prize as well as a semi-finalist for Ahsahta's Sawtooth Prize, and a selection was a finalist for the Atlas Review's TAR chapbook series. Poems from this work have appeared in Phantom, Quarterly West, Washington Square Review, The Journal, Twelfth House, and Winter Tangerine, among others. Two chapbook manuscripts are also making the rounds: An Opaque Flower Digging, which was a finalist for both the Omnidawn Chapbook Prize (chosen by Brian Teare) and the Slope Editions Chapbook Prize—poems have appeared in 1913: a journal of forms, OmniVerse, Prelude, and Deluge—and The Adversaria, a collection of closet dramas, which was a finalist for the Diagram Chapbook Prize (an excerpt is up at Ghost Proposal).
