MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Tania Pryputniewicz's first book of poems is November Butterfly. A graduate of the Iowa Writer's Workshop, she's the Managing Poetry Editor of The Fertile Source. A co-founding blogger for Mother, Writer, Mentor, she teaches poetry and Transformative Blogging for several different workshops, blogs for Feral Mom, Feral Writer, and creates award-winning micro movies and photo poem montages of her poetry for the Web.
Ruth Thompson's new book of poems (in a new, revised edition) is Woman with Crows. Frank X. Gaspar says, "There are many Zen-like moments of pure being in these poems, and there is also grief and questioning. Yet Ruth Thompson stares down her hungry ghosts and tames them…taken together, these poems accrue to a kind of wise triumph." Among her honors are the New Millennium Writings Poetry Award and the Harpur Palate Milton Kessler Memorial Award. Her chapbook Here Along Cazenovia Creek was the basis for a poetry and dance collaboration with Japanese dancer Shizuno Nasu.
Michelle Wing's debut poetry collection is Body on the Wall. Janet Fitch says of it, "These poems are like swallowed charcoal, purifying the toxins they've ingested. Brave, bracing, tender and true." Her poetry and creative nonfiction have been widely published. She writes a monthly literary column for a small chain of newspapers in Sonoma County.
