Alumnae Poets

Alumnae Poets: we miss having your work up here! Please send us an updated poem, bio and photo so we can share the great work you do. To fit our new site's formatting, photos must be hi-res, larger than 500x500 pixels. Looking forward to building this page up again!  — Jen Blackburn

Please note: Bios and photos of alumnae poets are being added on an ongoing basis. Contact Jennifer Blackburn with any questions or updates.
