Marie Howe’s poetry is intimate and often elegiac, achieving both introspection and perspective. Bob Hicok’s poems are soulful, reflective, and humanistic gems. Howe teaches Creative Writing at Sarah Lawrence College, Columbia, and New York University. She is the author of three volumes of poetry, Kingdom of Ordinary Time, The Good Thief, and What the Living Do, and the co-editor of a book of essays, In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic. Hicok is an Assistant Professor of English at Virginia Tech and has published five books of poetry, the latest being This Clumsy Living.
