Devon Balwit writes and teaches in Portland, OR. Every morning she gauges her fortunes based on the adroitness of her dog in catching his Frisbee. On days he does well, she returns home to find acceptances in her inbox in places like Postcard Poems and Prose, Rattle, The Cincinnati Review, The New Verse News, Oyez, Vector Press and many other print/on-line homes. (Search out her work on-line as she doesn’t have a professional page.) On days he misses, she returns to scores of rejections that drive her to furious creativity and resubmission. She welcomes contact with her readers.
