The Best of the Best New Poets of 2011

Rebecca Hazelton, “Book of Janus”

Much of Hazelton’s work sounds like a girl whispering into the ear of her very best friend: half pretty, tinkling, and half stolen, secret. See her bio below:

She has been the recipient of fellowships from the Creative Writing Institute at University of Wisconsin-Madison and from Vermont Studio Center.
