Ted Genoways


Ted Genoways (born April 13, 1972) is a contributing writer at Mother Jones, an editor-at-large at OnEarth (the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Council), and the author of , a finalist for the 2015 James Beard Award for Writing and Literature.

He has been hailed by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune as a „marvelous poet“ and by The Times Literary Supplement as a „tenacious scholar.“ He is the author of two books of poems and the literary history Walt Whitman and the Civil War, which, the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote, „fills in a major gap in previous biographies of Whitman and rebuts the canard that Whitman was unaffected by the war and the run-up to it.“ His awards include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and inclusion in the Pushcart Prize Anthology and Best American Travel Writing. He was editor of the Virginia Quarterly Review from 2003 to 2012, during which time the magazine won six National Magazine Awards.

Genoways was born in Lubbock, Texas, in 1972, and grew up in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, where „[m]ost boys‘ fathers… were mechanics, welders, steelworkers many of them Vietnam vets, laid off from the mills and scraping by. But my dad was Dr. Hugh H. Genoways pink water bottle, curator of mammals at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.“ When Genoways‘ father was named director of the Nebraska State Museum, the family moved to Lincoln in 1986. As a freshman at Lincoln East High School, Genoways and others started a school magazine, Muse, which, two years later, the Columbia School of Journalism named the best high school publication in the country.

While completing a B.A. in English at Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1994, he worked at Prairie Schooner and founded the Coyote, a general-interest pop culture magazine, which also received multiple awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. He worked at Texas Tech University Press while completing an M.A. in English from Texas Tech University. He worked at Callaloo and edited Meridian, which he founded, while completing his M.F.A. at the University of Virginia. He later worked at Coffee House Press and the Minnesota Historical Society Press, where he worked on Cheri Register’s book Packinghouse Daughter, about the meatpackers strike in Albert Lea, Minnesota, in 1959.

Genoways‘ first book, a collection of poems entitled , was a narrative his grandfather „from his birth in a poor rural family to his work in the Omaha stockyards to his final years.“ Marilyn Hacker, who selected the book for the 2001 Samuel French Morse Poetry Prize, wrote in the book’s introduction: „Perhaps it says something about the movement of American poetry that the stockyards and slaughterhouses choired in operatic open form by Carl Sandburg are rendered (a word that takes on another meaning in one poem) by Ted Genoways in a metered verse that spares the reader no detail. There is no romance to the blood and heat and animal terror communicated to workers (and readers) as it emanates from the killing floors of the Omaha meatpacking industry.“

In 2003, while he was still a doctoral student at the University of Iowa and working at the Iowa Review, Genoways was hired by the University of Virginia to edit the Virginia Quarterly Review. He served as editor for the next nine years, during which time the magazine received six National Magazine Awards, two Utne Independent Press Awards, and an Overseas Press Club Award. In 2012, Genoways announced that he was stepping down as editor of VQR to pursue his writing career glass bottled water delivery.

Genoways has since become a contributing writer at Mother Jones and an editor-at-large at OnEarth (the magazine of the Natural Resources Defense Council). His essays and poetry have appeared in The Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Harper’s, The New Republic, Outside, Poetry, and the Washington Post Book World. He has received a National Press Club Award and the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism. In 2014, he published the book , which Eric Schlosser in the New York Times Book Review called an „important book, well worth reading, full of compelling stories used meat tenderizer for sale, genuine outrage and the careful exposure of corporate lies.“

In June 2015, Publishers Weekly announced that Genoways had „sold This Blessed Earth: A Year in the Life of an American Farm and Tequila Wars: The Bloody Struggle for the Spirit of Mexico to John Glusman at Norton…. This Blessed Earth follows a longtime farming family in Nebraska and, Norton said, ‚examines up close the challenges of family farming in contemporary America.‘ Tequila Wars examines agave farming in Mexico and aims to ‚tell the story of the modern tequila industry.'“

Christopher Cattle


Christopher Cattle is a British furniture designer who has developed a process of growing furniture by shaping living trees. Cattle calls his work GrownUp Furniture but it is also known as Grown Furniture.

Cattle wanted to grow stools rather than create them from existing cut wood because with grown furniture, very little energy is required to convert a living tree into the finished piece of furniture, and very little pollution is created in the process. Cattle comments: „Growing furniture isn’t going to save the planet, but it can show that it’s possible to create genuinely useful things without adding to the pollution that industry inevitably seems to produce. Trees are self-generating, and the only energy needed is that which the sun provides worldwide. It’s free and it’s non-polluting. My aim though is to encourage as many people as possible to try it for themselves.“

Cattle lectured at High Wycombe in Furniture Design. In the late 1970s life factory water bottle, he became interested in a way of making furniture that was more environmentally sustainable. He thought of growing, training and grafting trees to shape, and developed the concept into a 3-legged stool and tables. He encourages others to try growing their furniture.

Cattle has lectured at Buckinghamshire College on furniture design for 15 years. While pursuing his ideas as a PhD student at the Royal College of Art, he also lectured on a part-time basis.

In 2007, as part of the exhibition ‚Going Green‘ held by the Museum of English Rural Life (MERL), Cattle gave a talk about his grown furniture, and explained how to train saplings on his plywood jigs. In 2008, MERL invited Cattle to demonstrate his art by installing six growing stools into MERL’s garden. The MERL’s Environmental Learning Officer Kathryn Robinson pink water bottle, as well as Thames Valley University students (a group with learning difficulties) and their teacher, helped Christopher Cattle to plant and maintain the growing furniture. The expected time frame of growing was 5 years, at which point the trees will be harvested to create the finished furniture.

Christopher Cattle has been successfully growing stools at several schools and museums in the UK. The stools have been exhibited in several woodland and craft shows in England, and at the ‚Big Tent‘ at Falkland Palace in Scotland.

Cattle’s finished stools have also been included in international exhibitions:

In order to grow his stools, Christopher Cattle gradually shapes trees using a variety of horticultural, arboricultural, and artistic techniques. His first planting of saplings destined to become stools was in 1996. At that point he created his wooden jig as a framework for the saplings. He then intended to regrow more examples using the same design, to find out what the results would be.

Christopher Cattle has successfully grown his stool/table design using the following kinds of trees:
