Bourbeau, poet, Francestown
Bourbeau has been fascinated by poetry since her early childhood.
Of her own work, she says, "the poem I need to write
is protean, constantly changing its shape, rearranging itself
in new forms, under new light." Her poem In
Which Nothing Warns You When You Are Going Astray
was published in Ploughshares, and Morning
Walk has appeared in Yankee Magazine. Bourbeau
has been invited to read at St. Agnes Library in New York
City, and at the Boston Poetry Conference.
first book, Of Spider Light,
A Moonshell will be published
by First Intensity Press in early 2003. The New Hampshire
State Council on the Arts Fellowship will give her more time
to interact with fellow poets in the state, and she plans
to offer public talks and readings where she can meet colleagues
with whom to "engage in further artistic correspondence."
