Bill Rasmovicz is an American poet. He is author of The World in Place of Itself (Alice James Books, 2007), a 2006 Kinereth Gensler Award winner, which also won the 2008 Sheila Motton Award from the New England Poetry Club.

His poems have appeared in literary journals and magazines including Third Coast, Hotel Amerika, Nimrod, Puerto del Sol, Gulf Coast and Mid-American Review.
