Hammer-Signe

Signe Hammer winters in San Miguel, where she writes, teaches writing workshops, co-leads birdwalks and coaches writers. She continues writing, birding and coaching in NYC, where she is a long-time member of The Writers Room.
Her poems and short stories have appeared in publications including Fiction, New England Review, Rapport, On Barcelona, Playgirl and the Doubleday anthologies Pleasures: Women Write Erotica and Erotic Interludes: Tales Told by Women. She has read her work at such venues as the Nuyorican Poets Café, The Knitting Factory, Dixon Place, the Cornelia St. Café and the San Miguel Literary Sala.
Her articles have appeared in numerous national publications ranging from The Village Voice to Harper’s Bazaar. She has published four nonfiction books: her memoir, By Her Own Hand: Memoirs of a Suicide’s Daughter, was described as “fascinating and disturbing,” with “an ironic distance worthy of Jane Austen,” in the New York Times Book Review, which named it a Notable Book.
As a dance-theater performer, Signe was a founding member of Meredith Monk/The House. She has also been an editor at both a major book publisher and a national magazine, and taught writing for 12 years at New York University.


Founded in January of 2016, Poetry Café Bellas Artes meets monthly, September through April. This all-volunteer community organization features local and visiting poets (established and emerging) sharing original work in a casual setting.

Please arrive a few minutes early. Seating will be first come, first seated. 
Poetry Café Bellas Artes is a project of the San Miguel Literary Sala
