“Heidi Seaborn has quickly gained recognition as a remarkable fresh voice, with a powerful lyrical quality to her writing." ~ David Wagoner
As a teenager I wrote poetry, gave readings, was published. Then I grew up and lost the plot for nearly 40 years. After three kids, 27 moves, a successful career in communications, three failed marriages and one that is working out wonderfully, I started writing poetry again in 2016. I've benefitted from David Wagoner's Master Class at the Hugo House and a small tribe of poets--the Bramble Poets Collective, as well as seminars with Jane Wong and Carolyne Wright. I spent November 2016 as part of the Tupelo Press 30/30--a challenge to write a poem a day for 30 days--that inducted me into the supportive Tupelo Press community. All of this has contributed to my work appearing in over 25 journals in the past year, including Nimrod International Journal of Poetry and Prose, Timberline Review, Gravel, West Trade Review, Into the Void Review and American Journal of Poetry, in five anthologies including WA129--the Washington State Poet Laureate's anthology and the Winston-Salem Writer's Flying South, in a political pamphlet/chapbook of my election poems entitled Body Politic published by Mount Analogue Press and on a Seattle bus as part of the Poetry on Buses contest. I'm thrilled that I was named a semi-finalist for the 2017 Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry and that Finishing Line Press will publish my chapbook Finding My Way Home in 2018.
Thank you for reading and sharing in my writing. Heidi Seaborn
