Dennis Holt 

Dennis Holt is a native of Hollywood, California, and after spending most of his teen-age years in Sherman Oaks and graduating from Van Nuys High School, he was educated in various subjects at CalTech, the University of California at Berkeley, and UCLA (from which he received a Ph.D. in Linguistics). Like Che Guevara, he served as a volunteer in Bolivia during the 1960s, in the Peace Corps in his case. As a scholar, he has done research on Native American languages of Honduras and Mexico. He is Secretary-Treasurer of the Endangered Language Fund, a Connecticut-based organization dedicated to the maintenance of dying languages everywhere. He is currently Assistant Professor of Linguistics at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain. He lives in a recently emptied nest in Hamden, Connecticut, with his wife, a doll-artist and mother of their 19-year-old son, who has just begun his freshman year at Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. He is a translator of Spanish-language poetry and of English-language poetry into Spanish. His poetry and his translations have been published in various little literary magazines on both coasts, including, recently, Blue Collar Review, Dirigible, Etcetera, Connecticut River Review, and Short Fuse, as well as in Honduras, El Salvador, and Ecuador. He has work forthcoming in Exquisite Corpse.
