Maril Crabtree

Author's Bio

Maril Crabtree grew up in Memphis and New Orleans but calls the Midwest home. A former French teacher, lawyer, peace activist, environmentalist, energy healer, and yoga instructor, she is grateful for poetry – hers and others’ – as the loom that weaves her life-threads together. Her most recent chapbook is Tying the Light (Finishing Line Press, 2014). She authored two other chapbooks: Dancing with Elvis (Top Hat & Tails Press, 2005,) and Moving On (Pudding House Press, 2010), and edited four anthologies of poetry and essays published by Adams Media. A Pushcart Prize nominee, her poetry has won numerous awards, including 1st Place “Judge’s Pick” for both poetry and fiction in the anthology Well-Versed 2014. She previously served as poetry editor for Kansas City Voices. More of her work can be seen at www.marilcrabtree.com
