Peter Waldor’s four previous books include The Unattended Harp (Settlement House), Who Touches Everything (Settlement House), which won the National Jewish Book Award for poetry, and Door to a Noisy Room (Alice James Books). His book-length poem, Leg Paint, appeared in Mudlark.
His poems have appeared in many journals, including The American Poetry Review, Ploughshares, Iowa Review, Colorado Review, Mothering Magazine, and on Poetry Daily and Verse Daily. Waldor was poet laureate of San Miguel County, Colorado from 2014 – 2015, and lives there and in Short Hills, New Jersey. He has worked as an executive in the insurance business for thirty years: for a small family insurance agency with his father and brother; at his own agency; and for three years working for a large public company, when he was exposed to the intersection between the political and business worlds.
