Winner, 2015 Turtle Island Editor’s Choice Chapbook Award. According to Jennifer Richter, author of the poetry collections Threshold and No Acute Distress, "Here From Somewhere Else, Judith Arcana’s gorgeous new collection, has movement at its core. Many of these poems are fueled by questions—questions that generate a powerful urgency and contribute to the book’s compelling internal momentum. A curious voice and generous heart guide us through Arcana’s geographical and emotional landscapes; I was delighted but not surprised that here, love gets the very last word."

Born and raised in the Great Lakes region, Judith Arcana has lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1995. She writes poems, stories, essays and books, including a well-loved biography of Grace Paley ("Grace Paley’s Life Stories"), the poetry collections "What if your mother," "4th Period English," "The Parachute Jump Effect" and "The Water Portfolio," a set of three lyric broadsides. Her story "Soon To Be A Major Motion Picture" won the first Minerva Rising Prose Prize and was published as a chapbook; "Keesha and Joanie and JANE," her zine about what happens when Roe v Wade is overturned in the near future, is rooted in her work as a Jane in Chicago’s underground abortion service (Judith has written a collection of Jane stories and hopes to see the book published in 2016).
