About Ed Bok Lee

Ed Bok Lee is a contemporary american poet who writes mainly poetry in various forms, though other published works include lyric prose, plays, short stories, and what he has referred to as 'poelogues', which derive technical elements from and often fall between poetry, the dramatic monologue, the soliloquy, and the duologue. Winner of an American Book Award and a PEN/Open Book Award, Lee strikes a dizzying balance between the organic and the cosmic, the intimate and mythological. Ed Bok Lee is the author of 3 poetry books including Mitochondrial Night (2019), Whorled, the recipient of a 2012 American Book Award and a 2012 Minnesota Book Award in Poetry, and Real Karaoke People (New Rivers Press), the recipient of a 2006 PEN/Open Book Award and a 2006 Asian American Literary Award (Members' Choice Award).
