Early Life and Writings
Weiner was born in Providence, Rhode Island and attended Radcliffe College, graduating with a B.A. in 1950. She began writing poetry in 1963 and published her first book, The Magritte Poems in 1966. In the late 1960s, she participated in a number of artistic events in New York, where she had been living for some time.
In the early 1970s, Weiner began writing a series of journals that were partly the result of her experiments with clairvoyant or automatic writing and partly a result of her schizophrenia. She influenced a number of the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poets and was included in the In the American Tree anthology. Her books include Clairvoyant Journal (1974), Little Books/Indians (1980), The Fast (1992), Silent Teachers Remembered Sequel (1994) and And We Speak Silent (1996).
