Denise R. Weuve is here tonight to celebrate the release of her book, The Truck Driver’s Daughter from the New York Press, ELJ. She is a Pushcart Prize Nominee whose work has appeared in San Pedro River Review, Silver Birch Press, Ishaan Review, Genre, and several other journals along with anthologies such as What’s Your Sign? and Storm Cycle. Currently her work is on display at New York University’s Library as part of the Riot Grrrl Compilation and Art Archive. Her talent has lead to awards including first place in the annual Sheila-Na-Gig poetry contest, and Donald Drury Prize in Poetry. She currently is an associate poetry editor for Cease, Cows!, voted a top 10 new literary journal, this past year. None of this has impressed her cat, friends, or family, who can either be found chewing up her poems, calling to do a night out, or asking what she is doing with her life. Currently, she attends Queens University of Charlotte, where she is obtaining an MFA in Poetry, and teaches high school creative writing and English.
Her former students wanted to help with this poetry profile (that they may have mistaken for an online dating profile). Okay. Wait. I'm thinking… Erica Garcia Denise R. Weuve is disgusted by the sight of a well-dressed young man fingering ashtrays in hope of rescuing a smoke for himself. She also dislikes meat. Rohan Raghavan Ms. Weuve's persona is refreshing and good-natured. She is a charismatic woman who you will treasure to have around. Marisa Gonzales If she were words on page, she'd be fiiiineeee print. Patrick Dinco
Denise R. Weuve is the kind of person who can make you laugh on a day when you don’t have a wifi connection. She praises Oreos, and hates the sun. Consider yourself lucky if you are in her presence. Erica Garcia (again)
