Sara Wintz’s work brings together text and theater in a practice that encompasses research, poetry, and performance. Ugly Duckling Presse published her book about the twentieth century, WALKING ACROSS A FIELD WE ARE FOCUSED ON AT THIS TIME NOW, in December 2012.
Sara Wintz is a contributing editor of Ugly Duckling Presse’s annual performance art sourcebook, EMERGENCY INDEX, and a member of the Board of Directors for Small Press Traffic, a literary arts non-profit based in San Francisco. She is a recipient of a grant from the Fund for Poetry, and a graduate of Mills College and the Milton Avery School of Graduate Studies at Bard College.
Her writing is published in Jacket, The Poetry Project Newsletter, 6x6, Big Bell, Openned, Try!, HTML Giant, and in the anthology The Sonnets: Re-Writing Shakespeare (recently published by Telephone/Nightboat Books). She lives in Oakland.
Megan Breiseth comes from Illinois and has lived in the Bay Area for 13 years. She’s the author of the chapbook Zia and the manuscript Fur. In addition to writing poetry, she also teaches, coaches, and reads tarot cards.
Grace Marie Grafton’s newest book, Whimsy, Reticence and Laud/unruly sonnets, came out in Spring 2012 from Poetic Matrix Press (www.poeticmatrix.com). Her book of prose poems, Other Clues, 2010, was published by Latitude Press (rawartpress.com). A chapbook of wordplay poems, Chrysanthemum Oratorio, 2010, is available from Dancing Girl Press.
She has worked for many years with CA Poets In The Schools, teaching children to write poetry. For her teaching work, she received numerous CA Arts Council grants, as well as being named Teacher of the Year by the River Of Words youth poetry and art annual contest, co-sponsored by Robert Hass, US Poet Laureate.
Her poetry won first prize in the Soul Making contest (PEN women, San Francisco), in the annual Bellingham Review contest, and Honorable Mention from Anderbo and Sycamore Review. Poems recently appear in Anderbo, Ambush Review, Talking Writing, Theodate and The Offending Adam.
