Kimberly Green has received fellowships from Bread Loaf, The Maine Community Foundation, and MacDowell. Her chapbook manuscript, What Becomes of Words, was selected for publication by the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art (CT) Poetry Series, and The Next Hunger was published by Bauhan in 2013. Kimberly is the 9th Poet Laureate of Portsmouth NH, and the producer and host of Rice Pudding Poetry.
Shelley Girdner’s poems have been published in several journals, including Nine Mile, Hunger Mountain, The Indiana Review, Mid-American Review, Poet Lore, Painted Bride Quarterly, and others. She’s been featured on PBS NewsHour Arts Beat. Her collection, You Were that White Bird was published by Bauhan in 2016. She teaches writing at the University of New Hampshire.
Rebecca Hennessy grew up in Montana and Utah. Mother, garlic farmer, business owner, church admin, photographer, and author of chapbook, Tangle of Bone, she writes poetry, essays, short fiction and, on occasion, blogs when there is weeding to be done. What she doesn’t do with any regularity is submit poetry for publication. Recent empty-nester, maybe now is her time. Rebecca lives in Maine, the sixth state she has called home.
