More about the readers
Hugh Martin is a veteran of the Iraq war; his chapbook So, How Was the War? was published in 2010, and his first full-length book, The Stick Soldiers, won the 2012 Poulin Book Prize and is forthcoming in April, 2013. James Harm says of it, "For in a world as harsh as this one, a world delimited by war, beauty is as appalling as it is necessary. Hugh Martin's great achievement is to remind us of this necessity, and to assert the power of poetry as witness and as solace." He is currently a Stegner Fellow at Stanford University.
Kathleen Winter's first book of poems, Nostalgia for the Criminal Past, won the 2011 Antivenom Poetry Award from Elixir Press. Cynthia Hogue says, "By turns witty, gutsy, and passionate…[t]here is in these poems a subtle, delicate narrative of loss, grief, and survival, but as a poet trained in the law, Winter knows that any truth, like joy, is rare and precious.…These poems are the nimble, profound products of experience alchemized into wisdom."
