Diane Wakoski (born 1937) is an American poet who is associated with the "deep image" poets, and to a lesser degree, the "confessional" and Beat poets of the 1960's.

Her early work was considered part of the "deep image" movement that also included Jerome Rothenberg, Robert Kelly, and Clayton Eshleman, among others. She also cites William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg as influences and her later work is more personal and conversational in the Williams mode.

She has published over forty books of poetry, including Emerald Ice : Selected Poems 1962-1987 (1988) and the four volumes of her The Archaeology of Movies and Books sequence, Argonaut Rose (1998), The Emerald City of Las Vegas (1995), Jason the Sailor (1993), and Medea the Sorceress (1991).

She is best known for a series of poems collectively known as "The Motorcycle Betrayal Poems." She won the prestigious William Carlos Williams award for her book Emerald Ice.
