Sheila Black


Sheila Black's poems have been published in numerous journals, including Poet Lore, Ellipsis (where she was awarded the Ellipsis Prize in 2001) and Heliotrope, which recently awarded her its Editor's Choice Award. In 2000, she was the co-winner of the Pellicer-Frost Frontera Prize, and in 2012 she was awarded the Witter Bynner Fellowship. She teaches part-time in the English Department at New Mexico State University and works as Development Director for the Colonias Development Council, a non-profit organization which does community organizing in the colonias of southern New Mexico.

From New York Times Opinion Section, Sheila Black's moving essay, "Passing My Disability on to My Children,” shows she is a wise and wonderful woman. Cinco Puntos is honored to be among her friends and publishers. Sheila is the co-editor, and the mover & shaker, of Beauty is a Verb, The New Poetry of Disability, and The Right Way to Be Crippled and Naked.
