Poet Anthony Madrid is the author of the chapbook The 580 Strophes (2009) and the full-length collection I Am Your Slave Now Do What I Say (2012). He has written in forms such as the ghazal and rhyming quatrain, bringing a contemporary, associative, and surreal sensibility to received forms.

A PhD student in the University of Chicago graduate program in English language and literature, Madrid’s study of poetics and American poetry resulted in his dissertation “The Warrant for Rhyme.”
