Carol Moldaw’s lyric novel, The Widening, was published by Etruscan Press in the spring of 2008. She is the author of four books of poetry. Moldaw is the recipient of a Lannan Foundation Marfa Writer’s Residency, an NEA Creative Writing Fellowship, and a Pushcart Prize, and her work is published widely in journals, including AGNI, Antioch Review, Boston Review, Chicago Review, Conjunctions, Denver Quarterly, FIELD, The New Republic, The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Parnassus, Threepenny Review, and Triquarterly. It has also been anthologized in many venues, including Western Wind: An Introduction to Poetry, and Under 35: A New Generation of American Poets. As noted in The New Yorker, “Moldaw’s work repeatedly achieves lyric junctures of shivering beauty.” Moldaw lives in Pojoaque, New Mexico. So Late, So New: New and Selected Poems is forthcoming from Etruscan Press in 2010.


Jeanne Marie Beaumont is the author of Curious Conduct, published by BOA Editions in 2004, and Placebo Effects, selected by William Matthews as a winner in the National Poetry Series and published by Norton in 1997. Her next book is forthcoming from BOA in spring 2010. Her poem “Afraid So” was made into a short film by award-winning filmmaker Jay Rosenblatt with narration by Garrison Keillor; it has been shown at over two dozen international festivals, including the TriBeCa Film Festival and the 2008 Split This Rock Poetry Festival; it won 2nd prize at the Black Maria Film Festival, among other awards. She currently teaches at the Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd St. Y and in the Stonecoast low-residency MFA program in Maine. Since 1983, she has made her home in Manhattan.


Hosting between 20 and 30 shows a week the Bowery Poetry Club (BPC) is proud of our place in the lineage of populist art: the Yiddish theater, burlesque, vaudeville, beat poetry, jazz, and punk that gave the Bowery its name.
