Author's Bio

I have been the current managing editor of U.S.1 Worksheets, the journal of the U.S.1 Poets' Cooperative in NJ, for more than a decade. I am also the author of five full-length books and four chapbooks: Ah, Men (Aldrich Press, 2016); The Owl Prince (Aldrich Press, 2015); Running Down Broken Cement (Main Street Rag, 2014), Midwestern Memories (Aldrich Press, 2013); On Location (March Street Press, 2011); Detours & Diversions (Main Street Rag, 2011); A Siege of Raptors (Finishing Line Press, 2010); One Stands Guard, One Sleeps (Plain View Press, 2009); Down to the Quick (Plain View Press, 2007).I began writing poetry in the mid-90s as a way to record the many stories I'd heard working with foster and adoptive kids, homeless families and those with mental illness or AIDS. This inspired the poetry in Running Down Broken Cement. www.nancyscott.net for more information.
