Elizabeth Anne Socolow, a native of New York City, has taught in many venues, most recently at Rutgers University. A founding member of U.S. 1 Poets’ Cooperative, she won the Barnard Poetry Prize in 1987 for her first book, Laughing at Gravity: Conversations with Isaac Newton. She has edited U.S. 1 Worksheets and is poetry editor of the Newsletter of the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts. Socolow’s poems have appeared in numerous publications, including Ploughshares, Nimrod, and Ms. Magazine."Elizabeth Socolow celebrates the unnoticed small perfections of the natural world, like the spores of the fern, and links them to large questions of connectedness and complexity."
