Recipient of this year’s Edna St. Vincent Millay and Red Wheelbarrow Poetry Prizes, Partridge Boswell is the author of Some Far Country, winner of the Grolier Poetry Prize. “Such desperate beauty in these poems,” remarks Marie Howe, “such rendered and willed surviving. Read this book if you want to remember what poetry can do to us, how it can find words for what can’t be said and shake us by our shoulders until we feel achingly alive again.” His poems have recently surfaced in The Gettysburg Review, Salmagundi, The American Poetry Review, Green Mountains Review, Plume, Hayden’s Ferry Review and Forklift, Ohio. Co-founder of Bookstock literary festival and former vocalist/lyricist of The Cows, he teaches at Burlington Writers Workshop and lives with his family in Vermont.
Poet/editor/teacher Peter Money’s books of poetry include hybrid works such as the prose-poem sequence with Saadi Youssef, To day- minutes only (2004); the poetry/music collaboration Blue Square (2007); Che: A Novella In Three Parts (2010); a book of translations, with Sinan Antoon, of the Arab Modernist Saadi Youssef (2012); and his most recent volume, American Drone (2013), which poet Baron Wormser calls a “full-bore, straight-up, flat-out necessary charge to the poet in these global/electronic times.” His poems have appeared in numerous publications, including in the City Light’s anthology Days I Moved Through Ordinary Sound, as well as on Garrison Keillor’s “The Writer’s Almanac.” Money’s work has also been translated into Spanish in Ultramar Literatura. A student of Allen Ginsberg, he has taught at Lebanon College and the Center for Cartoon Studies.
