Roberta Feins was born in New York, and has lived in North Carolina and Seattle. She has degrees in Social Science (BA), and Marine Ecology (MS), and received her MFA in poetry in 2007 from New England College.
Her poems have been published in Five AM, Antioch Review, The Cortland Review and The Gettysburg Review, among others. Her chapbook Something Like a River, was published by Moon Path Press in 2013. Roberta edits the e-zine Switched On Gutenberg.
Roberta works as a database consultant, and exercises the other side(s) of her brain in designing quilts and writing poetry. Many of her ideas come from her travels: kayaking in Alaska, staying in a tiny village in the Auvergne, Southern France, and bird-watching in the North Cascades of Washington State. “Wane” was inspired by autumn at Tiffany Lake in the Methow Valley.
