Carolyne Wright’s (Seattle, WA) most recent books are This Dream the World: New & Selected Poems (Lost Horse Press, 2017), whose title poem received a Pushcart Prize and appeared in The Best American Poetry 2009; and the ground-breaking anthology, Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workspace (Lost Horse, 2015), which received ten Pushcart Prize nominations. Her (and Eulene’s) Mania Klepto: the Book of Eulene (Turning Point, 2011) is “a tour-de-force in which an unfogettable protagonist takes us through an energetic romp through her vision.” A Contributing Editor for the Pushcart Prizes and Translation Editor for Artful Dodge, Carolyne has also published five award-winning volumes of poetry translated from Spanish and Bengali. She teaches for Seattle’s Richard Hugo House. https://carolynewright.wordpress.com
