Award winning poet Wendy Videlock lives on the edge of a canyon in Palisade with her husband and various critters. In the introduction to her first book, Nevertheless, MacArthur finalist AE Stallings says of her work, “Videlock is a magician of wit and whimsy, wisdom being not the least of these”.  Timothy Green, editor of Rattle says, “Videlock is one of the few poets I can still read at length and purely for pleasure." Her poems and essays appear in Poetry, O Magazine, ALP, Hudson Review, The New York Times, Rattle, Hopkins Review, and other venues.  Her work has won the Cantor Poetry Prize and has three times earned the Keats Soul Making Award.  Wendy has twice been short-listed for the Rattle Poetry Prize and Colorado Poet Laureate, and her works have been selected for inclusion in Best American Poetry.  She is the author of six books. Her most recent books are Wise to the West, a full length collection of poems, (Able Muse Press) and The Poetic Imaginarium, a collection of essays on language, landscape and the imagination, (Lithic Press). Wendy is also a visual artist, whose paintings feature in galleries throughout Western Colorado. To learn more about her work visit: https://wendy-videlock.constantcontactsites.com/
