After working in education for thirty years as a professor, mentor, public-school teacher, and
librarian, Kim now spends as much time as possible on the reading, writing, and sharing of
poetry.

Kim volunteers weekly for the international, intergenerational, intersectional poetry organization,
Cultivating Voices LIVE Poetry, because she believes in poetic community. She creates the
graphic designs for the group's events, and is privileged to collaborate with founder Sandra
Yannone and fellow poet Don Krieger on program ideas and management.

She earned her BA in English from Goucher College, her MA with Creative Writing Emphasis
from the University of Maryland-College Park, and her PhD in Creative Writing from the
University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Her gratitude overflows for her teachers and mentors --
Elizabeth Spires, Stanley Plumly, Michael Collier, Marcia Southwick, Greg Kuzma, and Hilda
Raz.

Her work appears in many journals, recently in Cider Press Review, The Blue Nib, and Banyan
Review. She is currently seeking a publisher for her full-length manuscript, "The Mayapple
Forest."
