Author of the article

Amy Lerman was born and raised on Miami Beach, moved to the Midwest for many years, and now lives with her husband and very spoiled cats in the Arizona desert, so all three landscapes figure prominently into her writing. She is residential English Faculty at Mesa Community College; her chapbook, Orbital Debris, won the 2022 Jonathan Holden Poetry Chapbook Contest; and her poems have appeared in or are forthcoming in Midwest Review, I-70 Review, Broad River Review, Radar Poetry, The Good Life Review, HeartWood, Rattle, Slippery Elm, Euphony, and other publications.
