Holthaus is the author of three books of poetry and several collections of essays, and has been awarded a fellowship in poetry from the National Endowment for the Arts. Pelon has been praised for her soprano voice and her performance on approximately 25 ancient and modern wind, string and free reed instruments. She is a 2010 recipient of a MSAB Artist Initiative Grant Award for her work as a composer.
