"The conceptual brilliance, and historical prevalence, of the calligram need not be overstated, and though forms like square kufic have influenced me, it is Apollinaire's calligrammes which have inspired me, as they have many others. However, the calligram has always attracted me first and foremost precisely because of the illegibility of the handwriting! It allows for multiple readings of the text as well as of the image. Thus I have been faithful to this notion, and though the poem hidden in this fish is indeed real, it is determinately vague."—Steven J. Fowler

S.J. Fowler (1983) is the author of three poetry collections Red Museum (Knives forks and spoons press 2011), Fights (Veer books 2011) and Minimum Security Prison Dentistry (AAA press 2011) and nine chapbooks. He edits the Maintenant interview series and is the editor of 3am magazine and Lyrikline in the UK.
