Her latest book is The Congress of Luminous Bodies, Aortic Books, 2013. The Green Season, World Parade Books, is now available in a new, expanded second edition. Other books include Traveler in Paradise: New and Selected Poems, PEARL Editions, 2004; Transforming Matter, PEARL 2000; Feathers and Dust, Deep Red and Mansions, all from Event Horizon Press. In 1994 she won the Staple First Edition writing award resulting in the publication in England of the short story collection, Women who Make Money and the Men Who Love Them. Her Greatest Hits chapbook, which includes her most anthologized poems from 1989-2000, is available from Pudding House.

She has often traveled to England to give readings and workshops and has served as Vice President for Programs of PEN Center USA West. Her work is the subject of the short film “Grief Becomes Me,” by director Christine Fugate, which was shown as a work-in-progress at the Kentucky Women Writer’s Conference in March of 2005, and is included in the now completed Grief Becomes Me: A Love Story, the documentary about her life and work. She is listed in the Greenwood Encyclopedia of American Poetry. Hilbert’s work is widely anthologized, most recently in The Widow’s Handbook, Kent State University Press, 2014.
