Jennifer Grotz

Jennifer Grotz is the award-winning author of two previous poetry collections, The Needle and Cusp. Her poetry has appeared in New Republic, The New Yorker, and Best American Poetry. She teaches at the University of Rochester. Her latest collection, Window Left Open, simultaneously traces the intimacy and vastness of the world. Full of the sensory pleasures of the natural world and with a slowed-down concept of time, she records the wonders of travel, a sojourn at a French monastery, and the translation of thoughts into words, words into another language, language into this remarkable poetry.
