Author's Bio

W. Nick Hill’s newest book of poems, Blue Nocturne, was released in March 2016 by Dos Madres Press. It celebrates the night, accepts insomnia, prizes cave paintings, hungers for new beginnings. A previous poetry collection And We’d Understand Crows Laughing came out in April 2012. The poems meditate on belongings, the tides, red trucks, water tapestries, our place and role on the planet. His bilingual chapbook, Mundane Rites / Ritos mundanos, was a finalist in the Sow’s Ear Chapbook contest. He translated Miguel Barnet’s Biography of a Runaway Slave, and three other novels for Curbstone Press, two of them winners of the Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Prize. He has also translated poetry by Alvaro Mutis, Javier Campos, David Huerta, and most recently by Jorge Fernández Granados. More information is available at www.wnickhill.net.
