Presenter bio:
Amanda Shaw set out into the world of adulthood, like most of us, with a vague idea of what was ahead. Since college she has lived in six different states and four countries, with poetry the greatest constant. After 20+ years of teaching and editing, she received her MFA in January 2020. She became a caretaker for her mother three years ago while continuing work as a freelance editor and teacher in official and non-official capacities. She currently divides her time between New Hampshire, where she was born, and Washington, D.C. Her upcoming collection, It Will Have Been So Beautiful, is due out from Lily Poetry Review Books in March 2024.
