About the poets:

From the Poetry Foundation:

“Born in Atlanta, poet, novelist, and publisher Renee Gladman earned a BA at Vassar College and an MA in poetics at the New College of California. Gladman, whose work has been associated with the New Narrative movement, composes prose and poetry that tests the potential of the sentence with mapmaking precision and curiosity.” Read more:

“Joshua Beckman was born in New Haven, Connecticut, and attended Hampshire College. In his introduction to Things Are Happening, poet Gerald Stern noted the ‘openness’ of Beckman’s poems: ‘His identity is through affection. That is his print.’ In a review for Coldfront magazine, John Deming commented: ‘Beckman’s traditionally a master at converting the personal to the existential in a deceptively plain-spoken way.’” Read more:
