Poetry. Christine Hamm's poetry brings the reader into a fairy tale world of dark and dangerous secrets, where a mother is a pile of sticks, a husband can be wished into a cat and a movie can be made from adolescent sexual experiences. Within the imaginative world of THE TRANSPARENT DINNER, Hamm reveals truths about a woman's intimacies and relationships. Christine Hamm is on the editorial board of several literary journals, including Vernacular. She teaches English at Rutgers University and poetry writing at Women's Studio Center in Queens, NY . Her work has been anthologized in Homewrecker: An Adultery Reader and The Murdering of Our Years: Artists and Activists on Making Ends Meet, both by Soft Skull Press. She has two chapbooks, The Animal Husband, published by Dancing Girl Press, and The Salt Daughter, by Little Poem Press. In 2004, she was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
