Lyn Lifshin’s many collections of poetry include Katrina, Lost Horses, and Barbaro: Beyond Brokenness. She split her time between New York and Virginia and was the subject of the documentary film Lyn Lifshin: Not Made of Glass. She died in 2019.
A submission from Lifshin would often include dozens of poems about a single subject: a relationship, a memory, dancing the tango. (Dance — including ballet and ballroom — was her second great love, after writing.)
