Ron Silliman

At his physical on 9/11/2001, Ron Silliman registered at 5’7”, two inches shorter than he had been for over 35 years. He presumed this simply meant that everyone was crazy that dayas they certainly were—but those two inches never returned. He has other recent poetry forthcoming in R&R and The Minute Review. Actually the work in the latter is 50 years old, but that’s recent enough.

Martha Ronk

Martha Ronk has published 13 books of poetry, most recently A Place One Is (Omnidawn 2022) and A Myth of Ariadne, based on De Chirico’s paintings of Ariadne (Parlor Press 2022). Her work is included in North American Women Poets in the 21st Century: Beyond Lyric and Language, eds. Lisa Sewell and Kazim Ali (Wesleyan University Press, 2020). She lives in Los Angeles and spends several months on Humboldt Bay in Northern California.


BLUNT RESEARCH GROUP (BRG) is an anonymous collective of poets, scholars, and artists. Its poems and essays have been published in journals such as Chicago Review, Gulf Coast, and Fence, and in chapbooks from Noemi Press (Lost Privilege Company, 2016) and above/ground press (The Pig’s Valise, 2024). Their first book, The Work-Shy (2016, 2018), was published in the Poetry Series of Wesleyan University Press (a volume selected by Stephanie Burt in the Yale Review as one of the “Best First Books of Poetry” of 2016). Mike Davis has described the poetry of The Work-Shy as “an archaeology of humanity that should haunt us forever.

Founded in 2020, Three Fold is an independent quarterly based in Detroit that presents exploratory points of view on arts, culture, and society in addition to original works in various media, including visual art, literature, film and the performing arts. We solicit and commission contributions from artists, writers, and activists around the world.

Three Fold recognizes, supports, and advocates for the sovereignty of Michigan’s twelve federally-recognized Indian nations, for historic Indigenous communities in Michigan, for Indigenous individuals and communities who live here now, and for those who were forcibly removed from their Homelands. We operate on occupied territories called Waawiiyaataanong, named by the Anishinaabeg and including the Three Fires Confederacy of Ojibwe (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa), and Bodewatomi (Potawatomi) peoples. We hold to commit to Indigenous communities in Waawiiyaataanong, their elders, both past and present, and future generations.
