Susan Kelly-DeWitt’slatest book of poems is Spider Season. Jane Mead says, “The poems in Susan Kelly-DeWitt’sSpider Season reflect our human desire to weave inner and outer worlds into an ordered pattern: like the spider’s web, these poems are delicate, made of strong filament, and vulnerable.” She’s published many previous collections, most recentlyThe Fortunate Islands, as well as an illustrated short story  The Audience. A former Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, she is a member of the National Book Critics Circle, the Northern California Book Reviewers association, and is a contributing editor forPoetry Flash, and a reviewer for  Library Journal. She is also an exhibiting visual artist.

Mary B. Moore’s new book of poems is  Amanda and the Man SoulDorianne Laux says, “This is one of those books that can’t be put down, that overwhelms us with the mystery of what it means to be human and alive in a body, to be in possession of a soul, or maybe twin souls.” Her recent collections includeFlicker, winner of the 2016 Dogfish Head Award, and  Eating the Light,a 2016 Sable Books’ chapbook winner.
