Joan Larkin’s most recent book, My Body: New and Selected Poems (Hanging Loose Press) received the Publishing Triangle’s 2008 Audre Lorde Award. Her previous books include Housework, A Long Sound, Sor Juana’s Love Poems (translated with Jaime Manrique), and Cold River, winner of a Lambda Award. Larkin lives in Brooklyn, New York, and teaches in the Drew University low-residency M.F.A. Program in Poetry and Poetry in Translation. David Ulin of the Los Angeles Times has called Larkin’s voice “unsentimental, ruthless and clear-eyed. This is poetry without pity, in which despair leads not to degradation but to a kind of grace.”
Jean Valentine won the Yale Younger Poets Award for her first book, Dream Barker, in 1965. Her collection, Door in the Mountain: New and Collected Poems 1965 – 2003, was the winner of the 2004 National Book Award for Poetry. Valentine was the New York State poet for two years and was the recipient of the 2009 Wallace Stevens Award from the Academy of American Poets. The author of eleven books of poetry, her most recent book of poems is Break the Glass.
