Lois Marie Harrod continues her series Self Portraits in Public Restrooms with the photo below from the Metropolitan Museum in New York City where she is joined by her grandaughter Sophie and grandson Sam who are more impressed in mummies and knights in armor than in her poems. However, she continues her writing despite their preferences. Harrod’s most recent collection is a chapbook And She Took the Heart (Casa de Cinco Hermanas Press, 2016). Her 13th and 14th poetry collections, Fragments from the Biography of Nemesis (Cherry Grove Press) and the chapbook How Marlene Mae Longs for Truth (Dancing Girl Press) appeared in 2013. The Only Is won the 2012 Tennessee Chapbook Contest (Poems & Plays), and Brief Term, a collection of poems about teachers and teaching was published by Black Buzzard Press, 2011. Cosmogony won the 2010 Hazel Lipa Chapbook (Iowa State). She is widely published in literary journals and online ezines from American Poetry Review to Zone 3. She teaches Creative Writing at The College of New Jersey fall semesters. Links to many poems online at www.loismarieharrod.org. Her Nightmares of the Minor Poet will be published by Five Oaks in May.
