Ann Iverson is a poet and visual artist. She is the author of Come Now to the Window, Laurel Collective; Definite Space; and Art Lessons, Holy Cow! Press. Her work has appeared in a number of literary venues including Writer’s Almanac with Garrison Keillor. Her art is installed in the Amplatz Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, and she has done a number of collaborative art projects with writers and artists. She feels fortunate to have the opportunity to live in the worlds of words and images and finds energy in the cyclical exchange between. Her fingers are happiest with a pencil nearby and her hands smile when smeared with paint.
