121009 Hoa Nguyen and Gloria Frym

Hoa Nguyen and Gloria Frym, Tuesday, October 9th

Born in the Mekong Delta and raised in the Washington, D.C. area, Hoa Nguyen studied Poetics at New College of California in San Francisco. With the poet Dale Smith, Nguyen founded Skanky Possum, a poetry journal and book imprint in Austin, TX where they lived for 14 years. The author of eight books and chapbooks, she currently lives in Toronto Ontario where she teaches poetics in a private workshop and at Ryerson University. Wave Books published her third full-length collection of poems, As Long As Trees Last, in September 2012.

 

Gloria Frym's most recent book of poetry is Mind over Matter. Rae Armantrout asks, “How does the present imprint itself on language, on poetry? Gloria Frym's Mind over Matter shows us that: the outlines of the endless wars, the credit default swaps. But it also shows poetry resisting this…This book makes me want to cheer.” Frym is both a poet and a short story writer; her books of poems include Homeless at Home and By Ear; her story collections include Distance No Object and How I Learned. She teaches at California College of the Arts.
