DODIE BELLAMY is the 2018–19 subject of the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts’ On Our Mind program, a yearlong series of public events, commissioned essays, and reading-group meetings inspired by an artist’s writing and lifework. Her most recent collection of writing is When the Sick Rule the World (Semiotext(e), 2015). Her essay “The Beating of Our Hearts” was presented at the 2014 Whitney Biennial. With Kevin Killian, she edited Writers Who Love Too Much: New Narrative 1977–1997 (Nightboat Books, 2017). For many years she has been writing The Letters of Mina Harker, an epistolary novel which brings forward into our own times the heroine of Bram Stoker's fin de siecle masterpiece, Dracula. Bellamy has written Feminine Hijinx, Answer, and, with the late Sam D'Allesandro, Real: The Letters of Mina Harker and Sam D'Allesandro. Her new piece, Broken English (with Bob Harrison), will be published shortly by Meow Press.
