Liz Rhodebeck has been writing poetry and other stuff since she was about ten years old. (She still has the personalized rejection letter from The Washington Post for a poem sent in 1968 about Robert Kennedy’s death.) Since then, she has published poems in numerous journals around the country, as well as having three chapbooks to her credit: Here the Water is Deep, What I Learned in Kansas and Benthos. She recently mentored and edited Hear My Voice: Poems of the Unheard Girls From the House of Love, an anthology written by teen girls in foster care in the Milwaukee area (all proceeds benefit House of Love Youth Homes). Liz also performs inspirational programs with the group, Grace River Poets. Visit her at www.waterwriter.com.
