extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Ellen Dore Watson: Bloomsburg: 3/20/08

Thursday, March 20, at 4 PM: Poet Ellen Doré Watson will read at Monty's Assembly Room on the upper campus of Bloomsburg University.

Watson serves as Director of the Poetry Center at Smith College and poetry editor of The Massachusetts Review. She is the author of four books of poems, including We Live in Bodies and Ladder Music, winner of the New England/New York award from Alice James Books and, most recently, This Sharpening, from Tupelo Press. In 1998, Library Journal named her “One of 24 Poets for the 21st Century.” Among her honors are a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artists Grant, a Rona Jaffe Writers Award, two Pushcart nominations, and a National Endowment for the Arts Translation Fellowship. Watson has translated a dozen books from the Brazilian Portuguese, including The Alphabet in the Park: Selected Poems of Adélia Prado (Wesleyan University Press), and also co-translates contemporary Arabic language poetry with Saadi Simawe. She makes her home in Conway, Massachusetts.

This event is free and open to the public.
