JANET HAMILL was born in Jersey City, NJ. For her first five years, she gazed across the Hudson from the Palisades in Weehawken before her family moved to New Milford in Bergen County. She attended Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) in south Jersey, where she earned a BA in English. After graduation, she made New York City her base, interweaving jobs in bookstores with travels across the U.S.A. and down into Mexico. She took a freighter across the Atlantic and travelled through southern Europe, Morocco, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania. Upon her return, Janet’s first book of poetry was published in 1975. Troublante (Oliphant Press), was followed by The Temple (Telephone Books), Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books), and Lost Ceilings (Telephone Books).
A fifth volume of poems, Body of Water, published by Bowery Books, in November 2008, was nominated for the Poetry Society of America’s William Carlos Williams Prize.

Janet’s poem “K-E-R-O-U-A-C,” included in the widely praised anthology, Bowery Women Poems (Bowery Books 2006), was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Tales from the Eternal Cafe is her most recent book with a preface by Patti Smith.
