Author's Bio

Yvette A. Schnoeker-Shorb's poetry and prose have appeared in many publications, including Clockhouse, AJN: American Journal of Nursing, About Place Journal, Front Range Review, Medical Literary Messenger, Lullwater Review, the Jungian journal Depth Insights, Switchback, Watershed Review, Eastern Iowa Review, and the anthology Talking Back and Looking Forward: An Educational Revolution in Poetry and Prose (Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group, 2016). In addition to past Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net nominations, her work received Honorable Mentions in 2016 from both Port Yonder Press and Erbacce Press. An educator, researcher, and editor, she co-founded Native West Press, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit natural history press that publishes interdisciplinary anthologies, including poets, on behalf of the natural environment. "I believe that poets are endowed with the responsibility to fearlessly document the world and time in which they live."
