Michele Wolf

Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 19990512

A burgeoning New York poet, Michele Wolf’s first book, Conversations During Sleep, was chosen by Peter Meinke as the winner of the Anhinga Prize for Poetry. Wolf reads from the work, which ranges from the “Healing Dirt” of New Mexico to the trails of “Everglades and Mangoes.” Though much of the poetry is personal, she talks about how inspiration also comes from her professional life as a magazine writer and editor.
