West Chester, PA
I think of myself as a woman-poet entrepreneur. In addition to doing my own writing and directing the West Chester University Poetry Center and Poetry Conference, I edit an online journal of formalist poetry by women, Mezzo Cammin, www.mezzocammin.com, and I founded The Mezzo Cammin Women Poets Timeline Project, which will eventually be the largest database of women poets in the world.
I grew up in rural Maine and currently live in northeastern Pennsylvania. I've had varying levels of success as a blueberry raker, a dishwasher, a hotel night auditor, and a reporter. I'm glad to be writing fiction. Currently I'm completing a collection of short stories and working on a novel. Next fall I'll be attending the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop as an MFA candidate in fiction.
