Sunday July 23 - Ray Hsu and Kristy Odelius

Ray Hsu is the author of Anthropy, which won the 2005 League of Canadian Poets' Gerald Lampert Award. He has published poems in journals and magazines including Fence, New American Writing, and The Walrus. Last year he was awarded a University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Humanities grant to teach poetry and literacy in prisons. His next book, Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon, will be published fall of 2007.

Kristy Odelius is a poet and Assistant Professor of English at North Park University, where she teaches creative writing and 19th century British literature. She taught poetry and American literature in Sweden last fall, and has dreams of translating contemporary Swedish poetry into English. Her poems and reviews have appeared or are forthcoming in Chicago Review, Notre Dame Review, ACM, Versal, Diagram and others. She is currently "seeking a publisher" (can you say that seriously, without quotation marks?) for her first book-length collection of poems, Strange Trades.
