William L. Fox


William L. Fox is a writer whose work is a sustained inquiry into how human cognition transforms land into landscape. His many nonfiction works rely upon fieldwork with artists and scientists in extreme environments. He has recently been appointed the Director of the Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno.

Fox was born in San Diego and attended Claremont McKenna College. He has edited several literary magazines and presses, among them the West Coast Poetry Review; worked as consulting editor for university presses; and directed the poetry program at the Squaw Valley Community of Writers. Fox has published poems, articles, reviews, and essays in more than seventy magazines and written eleven nonfiction books exploring art, cognition and landscape. In 2001–2002 he spent two-and-a-half months in Antarctica with the National Science Foundation, at the Antarctic Visiting Artists and Writers Program. He has been a Lannan Foundation writer-in-residence and received a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship. His latest book is Aereality: On the World from Above
