Diane Lockward
I live and write poetry in New Jersey. My new book, Temptation by Water, has just been released by Wind Publications. My second collection, What Feeds Us (Wind Publications), received the 2006 Quentin R. Howard Poetry Prize. I am also the author of Eve's Red Dress (Wind Publications, 2003) and a chapbook, Against Perfection. My poems appear in a number of anthologies such as Garrison Keillor's Good Poems for Hard Times and in such journals as Harvard Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, and Prairie Schooner. My poems have been featured on Poetry Daily, Verse Daily, and The Writer’s Almanac.
