lisa bourbeauLisa Bourbeau, poet, Francestown

Lisa 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.

bourbeau bookHer 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."
