Introducing Jack Straw Writer: Annette Spaulding-Convy
Blending nature themes and rustic imagery, Annette Spaulding-Convy has created a collection of poems that brings the past to life. Her work delves into family history and tells the story of a lost ancestor. With grace and force, Spaulding-Convy pays tribute to a forgotten individual.
Spaulding-Convy’s full length collection, In Broken Latin, will be published by the University of Arkansas Press (Spring 2012) as a finalist for the Miller Williams Poetry Prize. Her chapbook, In The Convent We Become Clouds, won the 2006 Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Contest and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Her poems have been published in Prairie Schooner, North American Review, Crab Orchard Review and in the International Feminist Journal of Politics, among others. She is Co-Editor of the literary journal, Crab Creek Review, and is Co-Founder of Two Sylvias Press, which will publish the first eBook anthology of contemporary women’s poetry, Fire On Her Tongue, later this year.
