Mary Stone Dockery

Poet

Author's Bio

First collection of poetry will be released by Woodley Press in 2012.
Two chapbooks are forthcoming from Dancing Girl Press and Kattywompus Press.

While I mainly consider myself a poet, I also write nonfiction and fiction. My work relies on sensual language and is often described as musical.

I also co-edit Stone Highway Review with poet Amanda Hash: www.stonehighway.com.
