Constance Stadler has been writing, publishing and editing poetry from the 'prehistoric' epoch of print journals to modern e-times. She was a former contributing editor to 'South and West', 'Eviscerator Heaven' and the much missed 'Calliope Nerve'. She has published over 500 poems and 6 chapbooks, including 'Sublunary Curse', 'Paper Cuts', 'Rummaging in the Attic' and 'Tinted Steam'.
Trained as a political anthropologist specializing in North Africa and a violinist, Stadler's influences are multiform. Work in formative years with the late poet Gwendolyn Brooks was seminal, but no less than Sufi Dervish dancers and the challenges of mastering Bruch's first concerto.
