William Minor has published seven books of poetry, the latest Gypsy Wisdom: New & Selected Poems; a comic novel: Trek: Lips, Sunny, Pecker and Me; and The Inherited Heart: An American Memoir. He’s also published three nonfiction books on music—the latest Jazz Journeys to Japan: The Heart Within. A professional musician since the age of sixteen, he has released three CDs: poetry and original music (For Women Missing or Dead and Mortality Suite) and a play for two voices with original musical score (Love Letters of Lynchburg). He played piano and read poems at a recent Book Launch at The Museum of Monterey for Gypsy Wisdom, with Heath Proskin on bass and vocalist Jaqui Hope singing poems set to music.
Cathleen Calbert is the author of four books of poetry: Lessons in Space (University of Florida Press), Bad Judgment (Sarabande Books), Sleeping with a Famous Poet (C.W.Books), and The Afflicted Girls, which won the Vernice Quebodeaux “Pathways” Poetry Prize for Women and has just been published by Little Red Tree.
Her poetry and prose have appeared in numerous publications, including Fiction, The Hudson Review, Ms. Magazine, The New Republic, The New York Times, The Paris Review, Poetry, Ploughshares, The Southern Review, TriQuarterly, and The Women’s Review of Books.
