S. E. INGRAHAM confesses much of her poetry is largely autobiographical but does not dwell on specifics. Suffice to say when you winter at the 53rd parallel (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – on the lip of the Arctic Circle) and share the odd summer with krypt-kickers (aka archaeological students) in southern Italy, in the shadow of a dormant volcano – the fodder for poems is immense. Ingraham also draws from an incredibly enriched living arrangement, with her lover/spouse of 40+ years, a loyal but chocolate-stealing wolf/border-collie cross, plus other close family. Her work appears or will soon, in: Poised in Flight, Pyrokinection, Shot Glass, Red Fez, Storm Cycle – The Best of 2012, Poetic Bloomings:The First Year, A Blackbird Sings,  and Prompted,  among other publications.
