They Will Sew The Blue Sail: Bio
image of Molly Weigel

Molly Weigel grew up beside a frequently flooding creek, which is how she first became a connoisseur of trash, debris, detritus, and “the shit that accumulates,” as her dad used to say. Her poems have recently appeared in Fringe, MiPoesias, and Verse Wisconsin. Her translation of Jorge Santiago Perednik’s The Shock of the Lenders received the 2013 PEN Poetry in Translation Award and her translation of Oliverio Girondo’s In the Moremarrow received a National Endowment for the Arts Translation Fellowship (both Action Books). Weigel, who holds a PhD in twentieth-century American poetry from Princeton, currently works as a therapist at Greater Trenton Behavioral Healthcare.
