Two New Orleans based writers–poet and dreamworker Rodger Kamenetz and fiction writer Moira Crone–join forces with East Bay native and recent returnee Ariel Resnikoff for a speculative set of their latest work. All three of them habitually push hard on boundaries, whether it’s the divide between conscious and subconscious life or the linguistic borders dividing cultures.

Rodger and Moira both taught writing at LSU in Baton Rouge for many years. Ariel is finishing up a PhD at Penn, where he has been very active as a teacher and a multilingual editor and translator.

Author of seven works of fiction, Moira Crone has won distinction for her short stories, novels, and her speculative fiction. In 2009 she received the Robert Penn Warren Award from the Southern Fellowship of Writers for the body of her work. Her 2014 novel THE ICE GARDEN, a coming of age tale set in the 1960’s South, won the Independent Booksellers Regional Gold Medal and was hailed by author Lee Smith, as “a heart-stopper.”   Her 2012 dystopian THE NOT YET, set in a drowned Louisiana in 2121, was one of seven finalists for the international Philip K. Dick Award, for sci-fi paperback of the year. She has received fellowships from the NEH, the NEA, Bunting Institute at Harvard-Radcliffe, and other institutions. Her works have been selected for the prize anthology New Stories from the South: The Year’s Bestfive times, have appeared in two dozen anthologies, and in such magazines as The New Yorker, MademoiselleTriQuarterly, Oxford American, Fantasy and Science Fiction, and Image. She lives in New Orleans.

Poet, author, essayist, biographer, religious thinker and dreamwork practitioner, Rodger Kamenetz is probably best known for his breakthrough account of Jewish-Buddhist dialogue, The Jew in the Lotus. A serious student of dreams since 1999, his The History of Last Night’s Dream was featured on Oprah Winfrey’s Soul Series. His poems have appeared in hundreds of periodicals and 25 anthologies. His previous books of poetry include The Missing Jew, Stuck, The Lowercase Jew, and To Die Next To You. YONDER is his seventh collection. Kamenetz lives in New Orleans where he practices Natural Dreamwork. Visit him at or

Ariel Resnikoff  is a poet, translator, editor & teacher. His most recent works include Ten-Four: Poems, Translations, Variations (Operating System 2015), with Jerome Rothenberg, & Between Shades (Materialist Press 2014). With Stephen Ross, he is at work on the first critical bilingual edition of Mikhl Likht’s modernist Yiddish long poem, Processions; and with Lilach Lachman and Gabriel Levin, he is translating the collected writings of the translingual-Hebrew poet, Avot Yeshurun. Ariel is a contributing editor of Global Modernists on Modernism (Bloomsbury, forthcoming ‘19), an anthology of multilingual modernist source texts, as well as a commissioning editor at Jacket2. His writing has been translated into French & Spanish and is forthcoming in German in a special issue of Schreibheft.
