Beauty is a Verb Editor Wins Prestigious Award
<i>Beauty is a Verb</i> Editor Wins Prestigious Award March 12, 2012

Congratulations to Sheila Black, a recipient of the 2012 Witter Bynner Fellowship, selected by Poet Laureate Philip Levine. Commending Black on her work, Levine said, “She is a consummate poet of memory who seems able to inhabit all the various women she is and has been. The loves and losses of the child, the young woman and the mother are present in these rich lyrics and storied poems. Hers is a poetry of feeling, and the whole panoply of emotions—from love to rage—is present and earned.”

Shelia Black is co-editor of the ground-breaking anthology Beauty is a Verb - The New Poetry of Disability.
