About the Poets:
Poet & Artist Leanne Grabel is the author of My Husband’s Eyebrows, which is a fun full-color illustrated chapbook celebrating her long marriage—the good, the bad, and most definitely the humorous side of a life shared. Leanne is a writer, illustrator, and performer in love with mixing genres and collaborating with other artists. She has written & produced numerous multi-media shows, including “The Lighter Side of Chronic Depression” and “Anger: The Musical.” Her graphic novel, Brontosaurus Illustrated, was published earlier this year by The Opiate Books. Leanne is the 2020 recipient of the Bread & Roses Award for contributions to women’s literature in the Pacific Northwest.
Elaine Nussbaum is the author of Blood Moon, which explores the first 18 months of the pandemic, social issues, and a tribute to Marvin Bell. She lives in Scappoose, Oregon with her partner, David, plus three cats, five hens and a rooster named Echinacea. When she is not working as a substitute teacher at a juvenile detention facility, infusing poetry into the curriculum, she is writing in her cabin. Elaine holds an MFA from Pacific University and a Certificate in Writing from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Boulder University. Her work has appeared in Bombay Gin, The Sun, Silk Road, Thimbleberry, Persimmon Tree, and elsewhere. Previous collections include Poems in the Key of D Flat and Jesus Christ Made Seattle Under Protest.
