ABOUT OUR HONOREES:

Paul Vangelisti will receive the George Drury Smith Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry. Previous recipients include David St. John, Wanda Coleman, Eloise Klein Healy, Bill Mohr, Suzanne Lummis, and Holly Prado. The award is given to a Los Angeles based poet whose work has raised the profile of poetry outside the bounds of Los Angeles and has brought widespread attention to the craft of poetry in Los Angeles. Vangelisti is the author of more than twenty books of poetry, as well as being a noted translator from Italian. Most recently, Border Music was published by Talisman House in 2016. His translation of Adriano Spatola's The Position of Things: Collected Poems, 1961-1992 (Green Integer, 2008) was awarded the American Academy of American Poets prize for translation in 2010. From 1971-1982 he was co-editor, with John McBride, of the literary magazine Invisible City and, from 1993-2002, edited Ribot, the annual report of the College of Neglected Science. Currently, with Luigi Ballerini, he is editing a six-volume anthology of U.S. poetry from 1960 to the present, Nuova poesia americana, for Mondadori in Milan. Vangelisti was Founding Chair of the Graduate Writing program at Otis College of Art & Design, and now teaches in that program.

Wayne Lindberg and Hilda Weiss will receive the Distinguished Service Award. Previous recipients include S.A. Griffin, Amélie Frank, Rick Lupert, Mike Sonksen, Elena Karina Byrne, and Luis J. Rodriguez. The award is given to a Los Angeles based poet who has inspired public interest in poetry through his or her good works, and raised the pursuit and practice of poetry to new heights through community action. Lindberg and Weiss are writers and the founding duo of Poetry.LA, an online video showcase of Southern Californian poets and venues. They’ve been documenting and archiving poetry readings since 2007, and have acquired over 300,000 hits on YouTube for their videos.  Their videos cover a wide range of poets and poetry spaces, from established institutions such as Beyond Baroque, to performance venues, such as Da’ Poetry Lounge in Hollywood. Through Poetry.LA, Lindberg and Weiss have captured the diversity and pulse of Southern California’s poetry communities, revealing the region’s powerful and dynamic voice.

Jim Fleck will receive the Alexandra Garrett Award for service to Beyond Baroque. Fleck served as Beyond Baroque’s technical director for many years, providing support and assistance to well over a thousand poets and performers.He also supported the arts in Los Angeles as a free-lance recording engineer, videographer, AV technician, videographer, video editor, sound designer, live sound producer, and assistant music editor before relocating to Florida with his family in 2015.
