Kitrell Andis is a poet and fiction writer from Indiana whose work has been published in newspapers and magazines around the US since the mid 1970s. He has three chapbooks of poems--Locations (Primer Press, 1979, Hearts Make Fists (GeekSpeak Unique Press, 1994) and Like Paradise, Only Different (GeekSpeak Unique Press, 1998).  His darkly comic novel Bookstore (GeekSpeak Unique Press, 1997) charts the downfall of the retail book industry in an hilarious homage to the Olympia Press paperback originals of his youth.

Andis has taught writing at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, the Free University of Indianapolis and at Central State Hospital.  He has been a newspaper columnist, feature writer, advertising copywriter, and magazine editor, most notably with pLopLop throughout the 1990s, where he also co-edited their chapbook series, publishing over 20 titles in a ten-year period.

A new, book-length fiction titled Halfway House, is set for release in January 2014.  A novel, The Summer Ho Chi Minh Died, will be released in the autumn of 2014.
