Ann Menebroker is recognized as one of the leading
women writers of the no apologies offered and none needed male
dominated "Meat Poets". Her work has nothing to hide and does
not attempt to. She writes with a clarity of emotion that not only invites
but pulls the reader into a world of raw reality. Her poems, while teasing
of private confession, offer an honesty that is tempered with both passion
and sensuality. Though there is a softness to Ann Menebroker, there
is also a sharpness; she is not afraid to cut away the veil of disillusionment
and expose a world that, at times, is blemished by its own heartlessness.
Ann is widely published in countless magazines, journals and anthologies,
has published 18 books of poetry and prose, and is remembered in the
dedication of Charles Bukowski's book South Of No North.
