Foundation for the Arts fellowship in Poetry and has also been awarded
a grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. In 1995 she was one

Amy Ernst, at the American Council for the Arts in New York City.
Her work, which has been nominated for several

in the anthologies And What Rough Beast, Mom - Candid moroirs by lesbians
about the first woman in their life, Hell's Kitchen - Slices of Life, and
the My Lover is A Woman anthology edited by Leslea Newman. Since Waters
began publishing electronically, her work can also be found on the Internet
at Conspire, Stirring, Samsara Quarterly, PoetryMagazine.com and the Astrophysicist's
Tango Partner Speaks, among others. Her personal web site is now available

Hailed as the "Poet Laureate of Hell's Kitchen," Waters
