Just like many creatives, I’m in the midst of transition. I have no idea where my work will be a year from now, but I’m enjoying this new exploration.
April Pameticky moved to Wichita in 2003 and got swept up in the Wichita Vortex.
April Pameticky, mother of two, shares time between her high school English classroom and the creative community of artists and writers in Kansas.
She launched the Wichita Broadside Project and currently serves as editor of River City Poetry, an online poetry journal. She’s had the honor of working with many creatives for unique cross-collaboration experiences, including Anatomy of a Sea Star-Reimagined, choreographed by students from Wichita State University Dance; and Epistrophy, pairing poets with musicians for a synergistic listening experience.
Most recently, she has worked ekphrastically with photographer Amanda Dickinson Pfister. She Cast Her Gaze used Ginsberg Sentences in response to Pfister’s 365 Days Instragram project, culminating in a Spring 2020 show at the Steckline Gallery at Newman University.
Her own work can be seen in journals like Malpais Review, KONZA, and Chiron Review. She is also the author of several chapbooks and her debut full-length collection, Waterbound, is available from Spartan Press.
