Author/Artist Bio

Tim Seibles has published five books of poetry: Hammerlock (1999), Ten Miles an Hour (1998), Kerosene (1995), Hurdy-Gurdy (1992), and Body Moves (1988). His poems have been anthologized and have appeared in journals including: Ploughshares, New England Review, and The Artful Dodge. Seibles’ poetry focuses on the alienation of non-whites in America. He examines a world that is dark and dominated by an uneven control of the power by whites, and yet in his work, Seibles dares to hope in reconciliation, freedom, and connection. For his work he has received the following grants and awards: the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center fellowship, the National Endowment for the Arts fellowship (1990), and an Open Voice Award from the National Writers’ Voice Project (1993).
