Beth Baruch Joselow has been writing poems since she first learned to read. Her work includes eight books and chapbooks of poetry, with poems appearing in numerous magazines and anthologies, including The New Yorker, The Washington Post, Boston Review, and American Poetry Review.
During her years in Washington, D.C., she won four grants for poetry from the D.C. Commission on the Arts, and taught writing and liberal arts electives for seventeen years at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. For many years, she also served as literary editor for the Washington Review of the Arts.
Joselow has written plays, nonfiction pieces for newspapers and magazines, art show catalogs, two nonfiction books on divorce, and Writing Without the Muse, a book of writing exercises. The Fountains of Exhaustion/The April Wars, an artists’ book made in twelve editions by Joselow with Russian visual artist Pavel Makov, has been exhibited in galleries in the US and Europe and is in the collection of the Osaka Museum in Japan.
Joselow now works as a mental health counselor in Lewes, Delaware, where she lives with her husband, poet Tom Mandel.
