Rex Wilder


Rex Wilder is an internationally recognized and anthologized poet. His poetry collection, Open Late: New & Collected Poems (1979-2018), was published by Chatwin in 2018.

Wilder’s poetry has appeared in leading magazines such as Poetry, The New Republic, The Nation, and the Yale, Harvard, Antioch, Georgia, and Poetry Ireland reviews. His poems have been featured over the decades in London’s Times Literary Supplement. A former regional director of the Poetry Society of America in L.A., Wilder helped establish Hollywood’s popular “Act of the Poet” reading series. He lives in Venice, California.

The two-term U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins said this of Rex’s first book, Waking Bodies:

“In Rex Wilder's poetry, the tired English of everyday use comes back to us refreshed and full of its original surprise. In a world glutted with poetry, that Wilder has found a new way to say the old things is a notable achievement.”

Watch Wilder read his poetry at Arundel Books alongside his fellow poet and close friend, Jessica Hornik.
