Rosa Alcalá has published three books of poetry, most recently MyOTHER TONGUE, and two edited collections, Spit Temple: The Selected Performances of Cecilia Vicuña, and Cecilia Vicuña: New & Selected Poems, which also include her translations. Runner-up for a PEN Translation Award and recipient of a National Endowment of the Arts Translation Fellowship, her own poems have been translated into Spanish and Portuguese. Born and raised in Paterson, NJ, Alcalá teaches in the Bilingual MFA in Creative Writing Program at the University of Texas at El Paso.


Daniel Borzutzky’s latest poetry collection is Lake Michigan (Pitt Poetry Series, 2018). He is the author of The Performance of Becoming Human (Brooklyn Arts Press), and recipient of the 2016 National Book Award for Poetry. His other books include In the Murmurs of the Rotten Carcass Economy (2015); Memories of my Overdevelopment (2015); and The Book of Interfering Bodies (2011). His translation of Galo Ghigliotto’s Valdivia (co-im-press) won the American Literary Translators Association's 2017 National Translation Award. He has also translated books by Chilean authors Raúl Zurita and Jaime Luis Huenún. He teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
