Ye Mimi is a Taiwanese poet and filmmaker. A graduate of the MFA Creative Writing Department at Dong Hwa University and the MFA Film Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she is the author of several volumes of poetry, most recently With/out a Hitch (2015). Steve Bradbury's translation of her chapbook His Days Go by the Way Her Years was a finalist for the Best Translated Book Award in poetry in 2014. She also makes poetry films, which have been exhibited internationally. Through collaging her words and images, she tries to erase the border between poetry and image-making to create a new landscape.
Steve Bradbury's translation of Hsia Yu's Salsa (Zephyr Press, 2014) was shortlisted for the Lucien Stryk Prize. He lives in Ft. White, Florida, near the headsprings of the Ichetucknee River.
