His poems, essays, and reviews have appeared in numerous national literary journals, including Alaska Quarterly Review, Best New Poets, Crab Orchard Review, Fifth Wednesday Journal, Green Mountains Review, and others. An excerpt of his memoir, Flight, is published in the current issue of Great River Review, and immediately received a Pushcart nomination—his seventh. A regular speaker at the Dominican University of California’s Low-Residency MFA Program and a free-lance poetry coach, Terry is the current and sixth Poet Laureate of Marin County, California.
Kat Crawford’s poetry has been published in several quarterlies including Creative Woman, Nomads’ Choir, Marin Poetry Anthology, Tuxedo of Dominican University and Spillway. Her first poetry collection, A Particular Kind of Heaven, was published in 2014. A recent graduate of the Dominican University MFA Poetry Program, Kat is busy planning a group that will use poetry to link the communities of teenagers and elders.
