Sandra Anfang is an award-winning Northern California teacher, poet, and visual artist. She began writing in third grade after memorizing “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” She still has her first poem, a rhyming poem about watching heavy snow fall from her second-story window. Sandra is the author of four poetry collections and several chapbooks. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals, including two Healdsburg Literary Guild anthologies, The Tower Journal, The We’Moon Datebook (2016 and 2017), Rattle, and twice in Spillway. Sandra’s chapbook, Looking Glass Heart, was published by Finishing Line Press in early 2016. A second chapbook, Road Worrier: Poems of the Inner and Outer Landscape, is forthcoming from the same publisher in early 2018. Sandra is the founder and host of the monthly poetry series, Rivertown Poets, in Petaluma, California and made her debut at the Petaluma Poetry Walk in September, 2017. She works as a California Poet/Teacher in the Schools. Writing, for her, is equal parts work and play, and a kind of waking dream. You can read some of her work at sandraanfang.com, Benicia Library, and Rattle.
