About the poets:

Maya Khosla, Sonoma County Poet Laureate, is author of Keel Bone (winner, 2003 Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize) and Heart of the Tearing. In All the Fires of Wind and Light, Maya invites readers to explore the wild –  from the Sierra Nevada and Cascades Mountains to the Bay of Bengal, and a little beyond.

Barbara Swift Brauer's first book, At Ease in the Borrowed World, was published by Sixteen Rivers Press in 2013. Her second poetry collection is Rain, Like a Thief. With portrait artist Jackie Kirk, she is coauthor of Witness: The Artist's Vision in "The Face of AIDS" (Pomegranate Artbooks, 1996).

Camille Norton's first book of poems, Corruption, was a 2004 National Poetry Series winner, published by Harper Perennial in 2005. In A Folio for the Dark, Camille asks us to contemplate the power of reading and writing in an open-source universe in which books as physical objects are disappearing.

Erin Rodoni is author of two poetry collections: Body, in Good Light and A Landscape for Loss. Her honors include the Montreal International Poetry Prize, a Ninth Letter Literary Award, an AWP Intro Journals Award, and inclusion in Best New Poets. She holds an MFA from San Diego State and is the High School Liaison for the Marin Poetry Center.
