Wendy Videlock lives in a small agricultural town on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies. Her work appears in The Best American Poetry, American Life in Poetry, Hudson Review, Hopkins Review, the New York Times, Poetry, Dark Horse, and other venues. In the introduction to her first book, MacArthur finalist A.E. Stallings says of her work, “what [these poems] lack in length . . . they make up for in depth, optical and aural illusion tricking us into epiphanies of perception.” Timothy Green, editor of Rattle, says, “Videlock is one of the few poets I can still read at length and purely for pleasure . . . her work is playfully wise, sharp-tongued, and always surprising.” Videlock’s books are available from Able Muse Press and EXOT Books.
