General Information


Michele Wolf is the author of Conversations During Sleep (Anhinga Press, 1998, Anhinga Prize for Poetry), which Yusef Komunyakaa called “a logbook of gutsy revelations, transporting us to a territory both ethereal and earthy. We care about the lives that nudge us awake in this dark luminosity, a heartfelt journey we don’t want to miss.” Her chapbook, The Keeper of Light, was the 1995 winner of the Painted Bride Quarterly Poetry Chapbook Series. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, The Hudson Review, Boulevard and numerous other literary journals and anthologies, including the award-winning When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple. Recipient of an Anna Davidson Rosenberg Award for poems on the Jewish experience, she has also held residency fellowships at Yaddo, the Edward F. Albee Foundation and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.
