Read full description of the books Bathe in it Or Sleep:In this beautiful and accomplished first collection, Kim Triedman writes movingly of being a child, a mother, a lover, a daughter, but most of all of being a person with a body in a world of intense experiences, experienced in the body and in the intensity of language itself. These are stunning and often breathtaking poems. I can’t wait to read more!
—Nadia Herman Colburn
Nature is a shaping presence in Kim Triedman’s poems of self and family—poems with the tensile strength and delicacy of a spider web. The season at the heart of them is winter: chill-choked;/ knife-blue sky sharpening/ its edge against/ the iron of the earth. Even indoors, the air is bright, etched, elemental. These revelatory poems discover beauty in the roughest terrain of love, of loss, of change—guided by the speaker’s quiet, yet insistent voice of the color of/ flame.
Read information about the authorI didn't start writing creatively until I was nearly 40, and then it was fast and furious! This past year (2013) I've had three books published -- one novel and two poetry collections. My first novel, "The Other Room," released with Owl Canyon Press in October. My first full-length poetry collection, "Plum(b)," came out in March with Main Street Rag Press. And my second poetry collection, "Hadestown," just launched in November from WordTech Communications. Needless to say, it's been a very good year!
My very first poetry book -- "bathe in it or sleep" -- won the Main Street Rag Chapbook Award and was published in 2008. I have also either won or been shortlisted in many national competitions, including
Winner, 2010 Ibbetson Street Poetry Award
First runner-up, 2011 Anabiosis Press Chapbook Award
Finalist, 2007 Philbrick Poetry Award
Finalist, 2008 James Jones First Novel Fellowship

I am also the editor/creator of the anthology, "Poets for Haiti: An Anthology of Poetry and Art" (Yileen Press, 2011), a volume which grew out of a benefit event I co-organized and co-chaired involving numerous prominent Boston-area poets. I have been published widely in literary journals and anthologies here and abroad (Prairie Schooner, Women Arts Quarterly, Salamander, Main Street Rag, Atticus Review, Poetry Salzburg Review, Albatross, Poetry International, etc).
I am a graduate of Brown University and live with my husband and two dogs in the Boston area.
I am available for guest author visits in the Boston area and via Skype elsewhere.
