By Jennifer Dick
In Jennifer K. Dick's first book, Fluorescence, very real places--Paris, Massachusetts, Colorado, Iowa, Morocco--mix into the imagined, into Breughelian villages where there's "a persimmon in the corner knitting." These places are inhabited by varied but always very real bodies, stretching outward from their own edges and encountering, or engendering, a certain luminescence in the process. What happens when we exceed ourselves? When fragments of dream are lifted to the surface and through to something beyond? Clues, keys, indications--all that once seemed certain slips off into code. These poems use language to crack it.

By Ellen Hinsey
The White Fire of Time is a collection of original, free-verse poems by Ellen Hinsey (who teaches writing and literature at the Skidmore College program in Paris and the Ecole Polytechnique) about endurance, consciousness, the earth itself and emotional respite in the face of merciless eternity. A thought-provoking and introspective anthology. Under the thunderous silence, under the shadow/of a Word, in terror or indifference, or in slow advancement,/Each body moving along the horizon of days,/Each in its own motion, each compelled by the temporal axis.
By Claire Kincannon
An international anthology of poetry, prose and plays as written by nineteen women from eleven countries of the world. The seeds for Sheets to the Wind were planted in Paris at the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development) with five women from five different countries contributing poems and short stories and drawings. The book mushroomed ultimately into nineteen women from eleven countries and twelve of those women read at our debut reading, also in Paris. A second edition of Sheets to the Wind is planned for Spring 2003 which will include a CD of most of the participants reading excerpts from their work.

By Cecilia Woloch
Late is driven by the alternating energies of prose poems and free verse. Woloch understands a person’s true -relationships with family, friends, and lovers arrive late—if at all. The exquisite pathos in these poems disclose Woloch’s abiding empathy for family, children, ex-lovers, and strangers.
Born in Pittsburgh in 1956, Cecilia Woloch grew up in Pittsburgh and in Kentucky. She earned degrees in English and Theatre Arts from Transylvania University. Woloch has been active as a poet in the schools and teacher of creative writing workshops. She has received poetry prizes from The Wildwood Journal, Literal Latte, and the Kentucky Arts Council. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

The winner of the Tupelo Press Snowbound Chapbook Award, selected by Marie Howe. Through prose poems in the form of "postcards" and free verse, Cecilia Woloch gives us a stunningly honest peek into relationships, at once acutely intimate and unabashedly compassionate. She "speaks" with a vivid poetic voice that Billy Collins has praised as "intense and precise." Cecilia Woloch is the author of three collections of poetry. Her poems have been featured in numerous journals and magazines, as well as anthologies such as Best American Poetry 2005, and Garrison Keillor's Good Poems for Hard Times. She is the director of Summer Poetry in Idyllwild and the Paris Poetry Workshop.
By Cecilia Woloch
Cecilia Woloch has published two books of poems, Sacrifice and her new collection Tsigan: The Gypsy Poem, and she has a new collection, tentatively titled Late, forthcoming in 2003. A celebrated teacher and a well known poet on the Los Angeles scene, she's the director of Summer Poetry in Idyllwild, a week-long celebration of poets and poetry in the San Jacinto Mountains of southern California each July.
By Cecilia Woloch
Tsigan works off a family myth of Gypsy heritage in Woloch's family, a mysterious paternal grandmother who died before the poet was born, and who disappeared without a trace, leaving only her legend of wildness and the seeds of poetry. Tsigan---which Ralph Angel calls "Haunted. Unsettled. Gorgeously so."---is a book length mediation, both personal and transpersonal.
By Cecilia Woloch
With each new collection of poems, Cecilia Woloch is even more courageous in her willingness to feel deeply all the beauty and hurt framing our small lives. The poems in Carpathia are guided by an exquisite lyricism and heartbreaking emotional honesty. The ache of love and longing underscored by loss is palpable—intensely felt. This is a gorgeous book by a poet who is passionately alive in the world. --Natasha Trethewey
