MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Noah Blaustein's first book of poems is Flirt. Christopher Merrill says, “Like all great lovers, he promises the world—and then delivers, in poems that employ a range of forms to address the central issues of the heart: how we flirt before we think—and how we then discern order in the new dispensation in which we find ourselves.” Widely published in a variety of literary journals, he is also the editor of the anthology Motion: American Sports Poems.
Alan Soldofsky's new book 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. His essays, interviews, and reviews have also appeared in Chelsea, The Writer's Chronicle, and Narrative. He is Director of the MFA in Creative Writing program at San Jose State University.
