Ann Fine

Mark McLemore talks to writer and teacher Ann Fine about her debut collection of poetry called "A Nest This Size", and how she helps others to enjoy writing by exploring the concept of "Good Poem / Bad Poem."


Ann Fine

Ann M. Fine's first book of poems, A Nest This Size, will be published in November 2009 by Shearsman Books. Her poems have appeared in such journals as Diner, Nocturnes Review of Literary Arts, Sonora Review, Cue, online at NoTell Motel, La Fovea, The Drunken Boat, and Moria.

She attended undergraduate school at The University of Tampa in Florida, and graduated with an MFA from Bennington Writing Seminars in Vermont, where she studied poetry and architectural history and theory. She has been the director of two community writing centers, Casa Libre en la Solana in Tucson, Arizona which she also co-founded, and InkTank World Headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. Along with artifice rhetoric and postmodern theory, Ann's passions include architecture and the history of fools, folly, and other humorous literary fodder.
