More about the readers
Susan Cohen's first full-length book of poems is Throat Singing. Jeanne Wagner says of it, "With a combination of artistry and investigative skill, Susan Cohen probes both life's domestic tenderness and its restless incongruities.…Unstintingly, this book satisfies our quest for the poem that 'surfaces, re-surfaces, and keeps glistening.'" She comes to poetry out of a long, varied, prize-winning career as a journalist, a reporter and magazine writer for the San Jose Mercury News, and as a faculty member of the Graduate School of Journalism at University of California, Berkeley. She is the author of books on science, health policy, and ethics.

Rebecca Foust won the 2008 Many Mountains Moving Poetry Book Prize for All That Gorgeous Pitiless Song. David Baker praises it, "Her remarkable strength, vision, and good-spirited clarity carry these poems from the Alleghenies to the California coast, from wild swans to the daily gifts and domestic traumas that shape and sustain a life." Her other books include God, Seed, environmental poetry with art by Lorna Stevens, and the two chapbooks Mom's Canoe and Dark Card, which won the Robert Phillips Poetry Chapbook Prize in 2007 and 2008.
