Wanda Morrow Clevenger lives in Hettick, IL – population 200, give or take. Over 200 pieces of her work appear in very numerous print and electronic literary journals and anthologies.
She used to keep birds, but they kept committing suicide. She tried to write an essay about the extensive misfortunes but no matter how she spun it, she came out looking pretty bad. Now she writes poetry and is currently shuffling the pages of two poetry manuscripts; one compiled entirely of poems bent from early 1900s Leavenworth Prison records. You’d be surprised at how many inmates had only one eye.
Recently, her poetry appeared in:
Red Fez – “The Laureate”
Gutter Eloquence Magazine – “The Sands of Jerusalem”
Every Day Poets – “Other Finds”
Everyday Poems – “The Shored House”
The Camel Saloon – “Banned for Life”
Wanda Clevenger’s debut book This Same Small Town in Each of Us, a collection of nonfiction, poetry and flash fiction, released in 2011 (PayPal link for signed copies).
