Natalie is a mother, poet, and teacher living in central Missouri. She has an MA from Missouri State University and an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her work can be found in Foothill, Witness, Fugue, and elsewhere online and in print.

She likes gardening, gnarly scars, and nocturnal activities. Dislikes include: bad drivers, bumper stickers, billboards, and her commute.

What she is looking for in submissions: "I am a fan of minimal departure and closure-less closure. Experiment, process, remove the veil and I am sure I'll be delighted."
