Ken Mikolowski

Ken Mikolowski is the author of three books of poetry.  He teaches poetry writing at the Residential College of The University of Michigan. For over thirty years he ran The Alternative Press, an arts letter-press which published Black Mountain and Beat poets Gary Snyder, Allen Ginsberg, Ted Berrigan, Robert Creeley, Anne Waldman and Alice Notely. Robert Creeley wrote of Mikolowski’s most recent book, Big Enigmas, “gnomic yet bedrock clear, simple yet with all the resource of a master's ear and wit... The care for those he loves and lives with sounds all through these tender poems, and such a warmth of head and heart you're not likely to find soon again.”
