More about the readers
Dean Rader's book of poems, Works & Days, won the 2010 Truman State University T. S. Eliot Prize. It was selected by Claudia Keelan, who says, "Works & Days asks timely questions, never forgetting that Self too is a fundamental part of the landscape. This is a serious book that never takes itself too seriously." Three poems from his new chapbook, Landscape Portrait Figure Form (Omnidawn), have been nominated for Pushcart Prizes. He's a noted reviewer, who's written for the San Francisco Chronicle and The Huffington Post, as well as for Poetry Flash. His work appears in the 2012 Best American Poetry. He has also published several prose books dealing with American Indian writing and art. He is professor of English at University of San Francisco.
Alan Soldofsky's book of poems is In the Buddha Factory. Dorianne Laux says, "This first collection from Alan Soldofsky reads like a fourth or fifth—dense with memorable imagery, the grit of experience, and a careful attention to language that together make it resonate with a captivating yogic hum." An important figure in Bay Area poetry, he's been a contributing editor of Poetry Flash and a co-host of a KPFA poetry show, Planet on the Table. His poems have been published widely in magazines and journals including Poetry Daily, Grand Street, The Georgia Review, Rattle, The Rattling Wall, and The Rumpus. A former contributing editor of Poetry Flash, his essays, interviews, and reviews have also appeared in Chelsea, The Writer's Chronicle, and Narrative. He is professor of English and director of creative writing at San Jose State University.
