Bio

Eleanor Stanford is the author of three books of poems from Carnegie Mellon University Press: The Book of Sleep (2008), Bartram's Garden (2015), and The Imaginal Marriage (2018). Her poems and essays have appeared in Poetry, Ploughshares, the Harvard Review, the Kenyon Review, the Georgia Review, Subtropics, the Colorado Review, the Iowa Review, and many others. She was an NEA grant recipient in poetry in 2019. Other grants and fellowships include a Hadassah-Brandeis grant, a University of Florida research fellowship, and Fulbright research grant (2014/2016), which allowed her to spend time in Brazil researching traditional midwifery. Much of this research inspired her most recent book, The Imaginal Marriage. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Cape Verde Islands from 1998-2000, and speaks Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Cape Verdean Creole. She teaches academic and creative writing in the Philadelphia area, and also works as a fellowships adviser.

Project

Vaig a treballar en l'elaboració d'una nova col·lecció de poemes anomenada The Fake Book, que pren el seu nom de la col·lecció de partitures d'estàndards de jazz. Alguns dels poemes tenen els títols dels propis estàndards de jazz. Els poemes es relacionen i exploren la forma i la música de diverses maneres, tant en l'estructura com en el contingut.
