Knox's nonfiction writing has appeared in The New York Times, "Press Play," "The Best American Poetry Blog," The Mycophile
, and "The Inquisitive Eater." She is the author of four books of poems.
Students compiled a field diary of their experiences included in park interpretive exhibitions, news media coverage (print and television) and publications such as THE INOCULUM, THE MYCOPHILE
and the INTERNATIONAL CANOPY NETWORK.
It is for that reason that field identification is something of an oral tradition, passed down from mycophile
at forays and festivals.
Seeing me, only a fellow mycophile
would know that I am neither drunk nor addled nor lost, but simply following my obsession.
Among the small and passionate subculture of mycophiles
, it is well known that there is much joy to be found in methodically combing a damp forest in order to unearth rare fungi.
It blends science, nature, memoir and culinary and health insights under one cover and also considers the world of fellow mycophiles
and their fascination with mushrooms.
In my area, the Mycological Association of Washington, D.C., is a magnificent gathering of "mycophiles
." It's an affiliate of the North American Mycological Association.
