Anna O. Dinwoodie was born in Berkeley, California and grew up on a hill. A degree in cultural anthropology and a desire to see other places have left her fascinated by intersections of landscape, belief, and words. In addition to writing poetry, she is an editor and German-English translator, and feeds her soul by dancing, walking in the woods, and drinking tea. Anna is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing & Literary Translation at Queens College.
Ricardo Alberto Maldonado was born and raised in Puerto Rico. He is the co-editor of Puerto Rico en mi corazón, the translation of Dinapiera Di Donato’s Colaterales/Collateral (National Poetry Series) and the recipient of fellowships from Cantomundo, the New York Foundation for the Arts and Queer|Arts|Mentorship. He lives in New York, where he serves as managing director at 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center.
Wendy Salinger’s memoir Listen was a finalist for The Krause Essay Prize. Her book of poetry Folly River was the winner of the first Open Competition of The National Poetry Series. Her poetry, fiction and essays have appeared in The New Republic, The New Yorker, Ploughshares, The Jewish Daily Forward, and other publications. She directs The Christopher Lightfoot Walker Literature Project at the Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd Street Y in New York City.
