Nick Sturm is a poet, literary scholar, and educator who is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Tech. Sturm authors Crystal Set, which he describes as "a blog that traces and collects my research and its ephemera." Readers of this blog may find unique archival materials of interest on the topics of the history of poetry, literature, and print culture. Strum is currently working on a book about poet Ted Berrigan, who was part of the New York School of poets; thus, much of Crystal Set is dedicated to other New York School poets. For instance, one recent post highlights the work of poet and visual artist Bernadette Mayer, accompanied by photographs of pages from Mayer's 1980-1981 workbook. Another recent post discusses poet Kenward Elmslie, featuring the cover of his 1971 book Circus Nerves and an undated video recording of Elmslie performing songs at The Poetry Project.
