This month’s online presentation welcomes Amber Nelson, Mary Ellen Talley and Diane Elser.Amber Nelson is the author of two full-length books of poetry, In Anima: Urgency and The Sexiest Man Alive (Spooky Girlfriend Press), as well as numerous chapbooks, most recently First Apocalypse (The Magnificent Field). She was the co-founder of alice blue review and founding editor of alice blue books. She lives in Seattle with her partner and their two cats where she hikes, bikes and cooks a lot.Mary Ellen Talley’s poems have recently been published in Raven Chronicles, Banshee, What Rough Beast, Global Poemics, and Ekphrastic Review as well as in the anthologies, Chrysanthemum, and Ice Cream Poems. Her poems have received two Pushcart nominations and her chapbook, Postcards from the Lilac City was published by Finishing Line Press in 2020. Mary Ellen is a former school-based speech-language pathologist and lives in Seattle, Washington.Unable to reliably find north if she cannot see a north-south running mountain range on the horizon, Diana Elser was born in Great Falls, Montana (Rockies to the east), grew up in El Paso, Texas (Franklin Mountains to the west), finished high school in Bountiful, Utah (west slope of the Wasatch Front), and earned a degree in English at Utah State (west slope of the Bear River Mountains). Despite coming from Montana ranch families on both sides, Diana grew up regretfully suburban. She practices poetry via classes offered at Hugo House in Seattle (west of the Cascades, east of the Olympics), the annual Jackson Hole Writers Conference (southeast of the Tetons), and two poetry groups. She is currently at work on more weather and climate poems, a persona collection in the voice of a blunt, mouthy grandmother, and collected eye-witness accounts of experiences with ghouls, so far mostly imaginary. She has published recently in The Chrysanthemum 2020 Literary Anthology (Goldfish Press), Rise Up Review (2017), Clerestory Poetry Journal(2017, 2016), and Writing It Right (2016, Shaggy Dog Press). She currently lives in San Clemente, California (southwest of the Santa Ana Mountains). Her chapbook, The Winds of Home Have Names, will be released by Finishing Line Press in late March.
