Rosemary Starace was born in 1953 in Manhattan. She grew up in Astoria, NY and Brant Lake, NY, USA. In her professional life she has been teacher of art and writing, curator, publisher, and community organizer for art and other civic issues, as well as artist and writer. Most recently, she co-edited, with Moira Richards and Lesley Wheeler, Letters to the World, an international anthology of poetry representing Wom-Po, the Discussion of Women?s Poetry Listserv.
Letters to the World is the first anthology of its kind-a feminist collaboration born from The Discussion of Women’s Poetry listserv (Wom-po), a vibrant, inclusive electronic community founded in 1997 by Annie Finch. With an introduction by D’Arcy Randall and brief essays by the poets themselves reflecting on the history and spirit of the listserv, the book presents a rich array of viewpoints and poems. Letters to the World is a remarkable example of how the Internet has radically rearranged associations among poets, editors, and readers.
