Jules Nyquist



 Jules Nyquist is the founder of Jules’ Poetry Playhouse in Placitas, NM, a place for poetry and play with writing classes and retreats with visiting poets and local poets. She took her MFA in Writing and Literature from Bennington College, VT. Her latest award-winning books are Zozobra Poems, 2019 NM/AZ Book Award winner in philosophy and  Homesick, then 2018 NM/AZ Book Award winner in poetry. Her two previous books of poems, Behind the Volcanoes and Appetites (Beatlick Press), were finalists for the 2017 and 2014 NM/AZ Book Awards, respectively. She has been interviewed in print, on line and on the radio by most recently, KUNM’s Women Folk (Albuquerque), KJZZ’s International Women’s HERstory (Tucson).    Her latest projects are a collection of her own sestinas with sestina writing exercises to help other poets, the Sestina Playbook, forthcoming the end of May 2020.  She has been widely published and is co-editor of the Poets Speak series with the award-winning HERS anthology. She founded Poetry Playhouse Publications, along with her husband John Roche, to publish poets that have that unique sense of play and creativity in their poetry. Jules has also edited several anthologies resulting from classes she teaches and collaborations, including Shadow of the Snake, Legends & Monsters, House of Cards Ekphrastic Poetry, Rolling Sixes Sestinas, and Poetry in Place: Autumn Writing from the Bosque.  Jules was a member of the Albuquerque Poet Laureate Selection Committee from 2016-2017.
