More about the readers
Atsuro Riley's first book of poems is Romey's Order, winner of the inaugural The Believer Poetry Award. Kay Ryan says, "Atsuro Riley's Romey's Order is deep craft—brilliant and consuming and thoroughly strange. When you put this book down, American poetry will be different than when you picked it up." Among Riley's honors are a Pushcart Prize, a Wood Prize from Poetry magazine, and the prestigious Kate Tufts Discovery Award for 2011.

Alexandra Teague's Mortal Geography was the winner of the 2009 Lexi Budnitsky First Book Prize in Poetry, and received the 2011 California Book Award's Gold Medal in Poetry. Eavan Boland says, "There is a haunting narrative purpose in this book, and these poems manage a true power and distinction in realizing it." A former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, Teague has been widely published in literary journals and anthologized in Best American Poetry 2000, Best New Poets 2008, and The Yale Anthology of Younger American Poetry.
