Author/Artist Bio

Tim Seibles is the author of five books of poetry—Body Moves (1988), Hurdy-Gurdy (1992), Kerosene (1995), Ten Miles an Hour (1998), and Hammerlock (1999). A National Endowment for the Arts Fellow in 1990, he received the Open Voice Award from the National Writers Voice Project in 1993.

His poetry has appeared in Kenyon Review, Black American Literature Forum, and New American Poets in the ‘90s. Poet Jack Myers said, "Seibles is a natural, gliding up in long sleek poems, crooning the creamy and glamorous politics of need." Seibles teaches at Old Dominion University.


Seibles read with fellow ODU MFA Faculty members: Luisa Igloria, Michael Pearson, Janet Peery, Shari Reynolds and Gary Short on Friday, October 6, 2000 at 4:00 p.m.
