MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Dan Bellm is both a poet and a translator; his latest translation is Description of a Flash of Cobalt Blue, by the Mexican poet Jorge Esquinca, winner of Mexico’s top poetry award, the Aguascalientes Prize. Dan Bellm works from both Spanish and French. He has published three books of his own poetry, most recently Practice, winner of a California Book Award, about which Alicia Suskin Ostriker says, “I am in awe of how Bellm’s poems perform a dance with and against Holy Scripture….Practice is like a long prayer of wonder, gratitude, pain and loss and tenderness.”
Helen Wickes’s new book of poems is World as You Left It. Lloyd Schwartz says, “Such good poems in Helen Wickes’ new collection, poems about memory and loss that skillfully combine the startling poetic image…and exuberant colloquial language….At the heart of World as You Left It are the poems centering on the poet’s late father—both hilarious…and mysterious, as touching as they are enlivening.” Her previous collections are Moon Over Zabriskie and Dowser’s Apprentice, and her first, In Search of Landscape. She is a member of Sixteen Rivers Press, a nonprofit, shared work, small press.
