Kathleene West

Kathleene West, emerita Professor of Poetry at New Mexico State University (1987-2008), was the author of ten books of poetry and two books of fiction, including Water Witching (Copper Canyon Press, 1984) and Greatest Hits 1978-2011 (Kattywompus Press, 2012).

During her tenure as a professor of poetry at New Mexico State University she became a renowned and beloved teacher of undergraduate and graduate courses in creative writing, form and technique, international literature, women writers (notably Plath and Sexton), and Norse sagas and mythology. She served as poetry editor of Puerto del Sol (1993-2008) and brought significant attention to contemporary Caribbean, Spanish, and Latin American poets through a series of translations that enabled Anglophone audiences to read their works. West died in 2013.
