New York based poet Mark Weiss has published ten collections of poetry, including the recent As Luck Would Have It (Shearsman), as well as translations of Mexican and Cuban poets and has edited bilingual anthologies of the poetry of Baja California and of Cuban poetry since 1944.

Gerrie Fellows was the Scottish poet at this year’s International Poetry Festival of Granada, Nicaragua. This evening she reads from some of the poets featured during the festival and presents the work of three young Nicaraguan writers, newly translated into English by Juana Adcock. Gerrie’s most recent collection of poetry is The Body in Space (Shearsman).

Gerry Loose, award-winning writer and land artist, is the creator of poems on the page and off the page, in gardens, built environments and ungardened spaces. His recent books include An Oakwoods Almanac (Shearsman) and fault line (Vagabond Voices), a sequence which reinvents nature poetry for the twenty-first century.
