Stacey Waite’s first full-length collection, Butch Geography, was published by Tupelo Press in January, 2013. She received an MFA in poetry and a PhD in composition from the University of Pittsburgh and has published three collections of poems: Choke (winner of the 2004 Frank O’Hara Prize in Poetry), Love Poem to Androgyny (winner of the 2006 Main Street Rag Chapbook competition), and the lake has no saint (winner of the 2008 Snowbound Prize from Tupelo Press). Other poems have been published most recently in Pinch, The Rattling Wall, Cream City Review, and Girls with Glasses. Waite taught for years at the University of Pittsburgh and in Carlow University’s Women’s Studies and Madwomen in the Attic programs. She is currently assistant professor of English at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, where she is the co-host of Prairie Schooner’s podcast, “Air Schooner.”

 

“Stacey Waite is among the most dazzling and culturally relevant of living poets, an original storyteller with amazing stories to tell.”

–Denise Duhamel

“In this arresting collection, Stacey Waite is a pathfinder, charting with disarming honesty, humor, pathos, and willful perplexity the uncertain terrain of gender in ways that shatter assumptions, unsettle easy presumptions, and yet, through the sheer grace of her craft and deft language, that open us to the beauty of our strange human enterprise.”

–Kwame Dawes, Glenna Luchei Editor of Prairie Schooner
