Author's Bio

Clara Mae Barnhart attended Champlain College and received her Masters and PhD in Creative Writing at SUNY Binghamton. Upon completion of her doctorate she stayed in Binghamton, adding two dogs, a cat, ten or so chickens, and a tree man to her family. Her work has been published in various journals including the Paterson Literary Review, Timberline Review, Best New Poets New York State Anthology, and Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry. When not working or writing she enjoys snuggling her pit bull, eating pizza and chicken wings, being outside, and sassing the tree man.
