Author Biography

Cathryn Cofell's poems and essays have been published in numerous journals and anthologies, and she is the author of five poetry chapbooks, most recently Kamikaze Commotion (2008). Her latest project is Lip (2010), a CD of her poetry set to the music of Obvious Dog (Bruce Dethlefsen and Bill Orth).

Cofell is a frequent keynote speaker, radio guest, workshop facilitator, and arts advocate. Her advocacy for the arts led to stints as advisor to the governor of Wisconsin for the creation of a state poet laureate position and to her position as founding chair of the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission. Currently, Cofell serves on the advisory board for Verse Wisconsin and volunteers for the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets and Appleton's Harmony Cafe Poetry Series.
