Kim Triedman's poems have been published widely, and she was nominated for the anthologies Best New Poets 2009 and Best of the Web 2010. Her first poetry collection—bathe in it or sleep—was published by Main Street Rag in October of 2008. She won the 2008 Main Street Rag Chapbook Competition and the 2010 Ibbetson Street Poetry Award. She also co-organized a poetry reading with Jim Henle of Harvard to benefit the people of Haiti, and edited Poets for Haiti: An Anthology of Poetry and Art.
This project was developed after the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince to raise money in support of the people of Haiti. It began with a large collaborative benefit reading at Harvard organized by Kim Triedman and Jim Henle involving 18 prominent Boston-area poets, and evolved into an anthology called Poets For Haiti: An Anthology of Poetry and Art, which was released this past November by Yileen Press. All proceeds from the original benefit and book sales (100%) are being donated to Partners in Health. The anthology includes poetry by both Haitian and non-Haitian poets (Robert Pinsky, Patrick Sylvain, Rosanna Warren, Marilene Phipps-Kettlewell, Lucille Clifton, etc), exquisite artwork by some of Haiti's most prominent visual artists, and a preface by Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl of Partners in Health. It is edited by Kim Triedman.
