We’re kicking off 2019 with work from new poetry books by two #HawaiiWriters:

Timothy Dyke is a writer and teacher who lives with parrots in Makiki. He is the author of the chapbook Awkward Hugger (2015), the prose poem collection Atoms of Muses (2017), and the poetry book MAGA (2019) — all published by Tinfish Press. Timothy’s poems, stories, and essays have also appeared in Drunken Boat, Spork Online, New Guard Review, Gramma Poetry, Santa Monica Review, and other publications. In 2012, he earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona. Since 1992, Timothy has taught English to high school students at Punahou School.

Zachary Payne is a poet and translator who works as a Spanish and Applied Linguistics Professor at Windward Community College. After Zach learned Spanish at the age of 19, this new language became the language of his poetic voice. Since then, he has received his PhD from the Complutense University in Madrid, in Spanish and Latin American Thought. He has published two collections of Spanish poems, the most recently Robos, Setas & Sombras (Huerga y Fierro, 2014), and was included in the anthology, Disidentes antología de poetas críticos españoles 1990-2014. (La oveja roja, 2015). Zach continues to write in Spanish but on occasions will write in English. He is the author of Termitas/Termites (2016)a bilingual online chapbook, and Termites: the illegal occupation of paradise (Hester Glock Press, 2019).
