Nance Van Winckel
Nance Van Winckel’s sixth volume of poetry, Pacific Walkers, was recently released from U. of Washington Press. Her other books of poetry include: No Starling (University of Washington Press, 2007), Bad Girl, with Hawk (U. of Illinois Press, 1987), The Dirt (Miami U. Press, 1994), Beside Ourselves (Miami University Press, 2003), and After A Spell (Miami U. Press, 1998), which received the Washington State Governor’s Award for Poetry.
Nance teaches in the low-residency MFA in Writing Program at Vermont College of Fine Arts, and her current project is a cross-discipline work for which she has invented a new term: the PHO-TOEM. She melds photography (her own) with small poems and other graphic material she "graffities" onto the photographic surface.
