Wanda Coleman


Wanda Coleman, "the L.A. Blueswoman," writes poems and stories that holler, wail, and funk up the room. Her award-winning books include Bathwater Wine, Jazz and Twelve O'Clock Tales, Mambo Hips and Make Believe, Mercurochrome (all from Black Sparrow Press), and Ostinato Vamps (University of Pittsburgh Press). She occasionally blogs for The Poetry Foundation (HARRIET) and David R. Godine, Inc. (Black Sparrow Books).
