More about Alice:
Born in Washington, D.C., the winter after Watergate to a Masterpiece Theater-obsessed mother and Archie Bunker-obsessed father, Alice’s past educational and work experience is unusually varied, and it now feeds her work as a poet, as well as an editor, coach and marketing consultant to hundreds of writers. After the Steaming Stops is her most recent collection of poetry; previous collections are Right Lane Ends and Unfinished Projects. She has taught classes and writing workshops to aspiring authors of nearly all ages (from 9 to 90), both in person and online. Alice lives in Raleigh with her husband, two children and three parakeets: Woodbird, Birdstein and Perry. Get published now with Alice’s free writing tips at www.aliceosborn.com.
