Deborah Diemont’s poems are set in Latin America, but they are not tourist poems or the earnest expropriation of experience that comes from casual travel. Diemont has lived what she writes about, and she brings to it, not a sentimental eye, but the educated eye of a weathered love. – Andrew Hudgins
For over fifteen years, Deborah Diemont has traveled between the United States and Latin America, having lived for a year in Honduras and three years in southern Mexico. She now resides in Syracuse, New York and spends summers in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, where she translates exhibit materials for the Museum of Mayan Medicine. Her poems and poetry translations have appeared in Cairn, The Evansville Review, Literary Mama, Lucid Rhythms, The Oleander Review, and elsewhere.
