Terri Glass is a writer of the natural world. She is the author of three books of poetry, most recent, Being Animal by Kelsay Books. Her work has appeared in Young Raven’s Literary Review, Fourth River, About Place, California Quarterly and many anthologies including Fire and Rain; Ecopoetry of California, Wild Gods, and Earth Blessings. She is the former director of California Poets in the Schools and has a MFA in creative writing from USM. A long time resident of Marin, she has relocated to the wilds of rural northern California along the Smith River. She continues to teach poetry writing to adults and children through Cal Poets in the Schools and Del Norte County Arts Council.
Susan G. Wooldridge conducts writing workshops privately, through Poets & Writers, Inc., and with the California Poets in the Schools program. She is the author of Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words, a Book Sense Pick, a long-running Quality Paperback Book Club selection, and a Writer's Digest Book Club selection. She has also written a chapbook of poems, Bathing with Ants.
Emilie Lygren is an educator, facilitator, and poet. Throughout her career, Emilie has intentionally cultivated a broad range of teaching skills and expertise in curriculum development, science education, social emotional learning, facilitation, learning theory, outdoor leadership, and culturally responsive teaching practices. Her poems have been published in Thimble Literary Magazine, The English Leadership Quarterly, and Solo Novo, among others. In writing and teaching, Emilie calls on awareness and curiosity as tools to bring people into relationship with themselves, their communities, and the natural world. When she’s not writing poetry, you’ll likely find her somewhere on the Central Coast of California, talking to strangers, taking long walks, reading, or cooking for friends.
