The Poets include:
Levine-Keating has taught Comparative Literature and Creative Writing at Pace since 1983. Her poetry collection, Lunar Eclipse, was published in 2018.
- “Levine-Keating embraces the world and everything in it, even that which disappears, in clear and precise language that the reader can’t resist.”—Bertha Rogers
Ebele Oseye (Ellease Southerland)
Oseye’s novel, Let the Lion Eat Straw, was chosen by the New York Public Library for its Black Heritage Series. She has received the Gwendolyn Brooks Award for poetry, and has taught Literature of African Peoples and Creative Writing at Pace since the 1970s.
- “Ellease Southerland is a seer of the interior human landscape. In Let the Lion Eat Straw, she gives her vision to her readers...Ellease Southerland is a joy.””—Maya Angelou
Richie is a poet, editor, translator, small-press publisher, and director of creative and professional writing at Pace. His sixth poetry book, Only Here Between, is due out this year.
- “[Richie’s] subtle, deft poems are like an intimate conversation: full of an uncanny delight in the companionship of a world whose details are as ordinary as they are miraculous.”—Ann Lauterbach
North is the author of 12 poetry collections as well as books of critical prose and collaborations with artists, and has accumulated a number of poetry awards during his long career. His recent book, Everything and Other Poems, was chosen as a New and Noteworthy Book by The New York Times.
- “North’s wit, exuberance and unfailingly elegant syntax make him one of the most memorable of contemporary poets.”—Washington Post World
