Valerie Hsiung’s debut books of poetry–incantation inarticulate and under your face–were both published in 2013 by O Balthazar Press. Her first full-length song record–Is, or, THE MOON IS NOT SAFE–will be out in November 2014. Latest and notable poetry and writing can be found or is forthcoming in print and digital with American Letters & Commentary, Apiary, Denver Quarterly, Diode Poetry Journal, EOAGH: Journal of the Arts, Hayden’s Ferry Review, LOVEbook by SPZCE, Mad Hatters’ Review, Moonshot, New Delta Review, the PEN Poetry Series, RealPoetik, VOLT and elsewhere. Her poetry books have been honored as winner of the 2012 Frances Mason Harris Prize and as finalist for the 2014 Fence Ottoline Book Prize.  A child of the Bluegrass hills of Cincinnati and the Mojave desert of Las Vegas, Hsiung has lived and worked in Locmaria, Los Angeles, Mougins, Paris, Providence, Shanghai, Xinzhu, and is now based out of Brooklyn and Louisville.
