Barry Goldensohn: “I've taught at Goddard, the Writer's Workshop at the U of Iowa, Hampshire College, Skidmore College from which I retired in 2003, though I still teach in the NY Summer writers Institute there. I've published over a hundred poems in magazines like Salmagundi, The Yale Review, the NYRB, the New Republic and many others, and am at work on my 9th book, which is nearing completion.”
Lorrie Goldensohn: “My day job is being a literary critic—my first book, Elizabeth Bishop: The Biography of a Poet, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and the next two, Dismantling Glory, and An Anthology of American War Poetry, were about war poetry. Over decades, I’ve published poems in the New Yorker, American Poetry Review, Salmagundi and The Yale Review. Some poems have strayed into anthologies. I’ve taught fiction, poetry, and memoir writing from Plainfield to Poughkeepsie and abroad from Salzburg to Amsterdam. After retiring from Vassar College in 2000, I began to live half the year in Cabot, VT and the other half wherever choice and necessity take me.”
