About Sparse Words

We are a group of poets, translators, and poetry connoisseurs based in Rhode Island, USA.

At present, our website features exclusively the new, bilingual volume of poetry "of difficult things" by the phenomenal Polish poet Elżbieta Cichla-Czarniawska. The volume "of difficult things" is the first collection of poems by Elżbieta Cichla-Czarniawska in English translation.

Looking ahead, we plan to present other outstanding works of English language poetry and foreign language poetry in English translation.
