From the Poetry Foundation website:

******Feminist Beat poet Diane di Prima, b.1934 d.2020, was born in Brooklyn, New York. She attended Swarthmore College for two years before moving to Greenwich Village and becoming a writer in the emerging Beat movement. There, she developed friendships with poets Amiri Baraka, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Frank O'Hara, and Audre Lorde. After joining Timothy Leary's intentional community in upstate New York, she moved to San Francisco in 1968.

Di Prima published more than 40 books. With Amiri Baraka, she co-edited the literary magazine The Floating Bear from 1961 to 1969. She co-founded the Poets Press and the New York Poets Theatre and founded Eidolon Editions and the Poets Institute. A follower of Buddhism, she also co-founded the San Francisco Institute of Magical and Healing Arts.

Di Prima was named Poet Laureate of San Francisco in 2009. She was awarded the National Poetry Association's Lifetime Service Award and the Fred Cody Award for Lifetime Achievement, and she also received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Committee on Poetry, the Lapis Foundation, and the Institute for Aesthetic Development. St. Lawrence University granted her an honorary doctorate.

Diane di Prima died on October 25, 2020 in San Francisco. She was one of the first women Beat writers, and a major figure in the group known as Women of the Beat Generation.******
