Steven Sher

Author's Bio

I am the author of 14 books including, most recently, Grazing On Stars: Selected Poems (Presa Press, 2012)and The House of Washing Hands (Pecan Grove Press, 2014). My poetry and prose have appeared in some 350 publications across the world. Much of my writing centers on ritual (Jewish) and spiritual, healing and family/communal themes. I have taught writing for more than 35 years at many universities, workshops, festivals, writers in the schools programs. My early teachers/mentors include Menke Katz, John Ashbery, Larry Levis. I have also been an editor and writing consultant for more than 40 years. See stevensher.net for more information.
