“Stucky’s verse has the power of the best East European poets—some of his poems seem to be perfect, magnificent, and instantly anthologizable. He is a forceful, cogent, incisive phrase-maker.” — Bill Knott

Janaka Stucky is the author of The Truth Is We Are Perfect, the publisher over at Black Ocean Press, and oversees the annual poetry journal, Handsome. He is also the author of two chapbooks: Your Name Is The Only Freedom and The World Will Deny It For You. His poems have appeared in such journals as Denver Quarterly, Fence, and North American Review. His articles have been published by The Huffington Post and The Poetry Foundation. He is a two-time National Haiku champion and in 2010 he was voted “Boston’s Best Poet” in The Boston Phoenix.
