Ann Veronica Simon is originally from Michigan. She received her M.F.A. from Louisiana State University and is currently in the Ph.D. program in Rhetoric at U.C. Berkeley. Her work has appeared in Exquisite Corpse, Trivia, Prosodia, Idiom and is forthcoming in Mirage and Clamour. A brilliant performer, Simon is the Ruth Draper de nos jours. Reading her cool, angular poetry is like following the dance notations of Martha Graham.
