About the Author
Cecilia Vicuña is a Chilean poet, artist and filmmaker. The author of twenty poetry books published in Europe, Latin America and the U.S., she performs and exhibits her work widely. A precursor of conceptual, impermanent art and the improvisatory oral performance, her work deals with the interactions between language, earth and textiles. Her recent books are NEW AND SELECTED POEMS OF CECILIA VICUÑA (Kelsey Street Press, 2018), SPIT TEMPLE: THE SELECTED PERFORMANCES OF CECILIA VICUÑA (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2012), Chanccani Quipu, a new artist book by Granary Books, and SABORAMI (ChainLinks, 2011). She co-edited The Oxford Book of Latin American Poetry (2009). Since 1980 she divides her time between Chile and New York.
Rosa Alcalá is the author of MYOTHER TONGUE (Futurepoem, 2017), THE LUST OF UNSENTIMENTAL WATERS (Shearsman Books, 2012) and UNDOCUMENTARIES (Shearsman Books, 2010), and two chapbooks, Some Maritime Disasters This Century (Belladonna*, 2003) and Undocumentary (Dos Press, 2008). Her work appears in the anthology The Wind Shifts: New Latino Poetry (University of Arizona Press, 2007), and in journals such as Mandorla, CHAIN, Barrow Street, Tarpaulin Sky, and The Brooklyn Rail. Alcalá has also translated poetry by Cecilia Vicuña, Lourdes Vázquez, and Lila Zemborain, among others. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Brown University, and a PhD in English from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Born and raised in Paterson, NJ, she currently resides in El Paso, Texas, where she teaches in the Department of Creative Writing and Bilingual MFA Program at the University of Texas at El Paso.
