About Our Guest Editor

April Michelle Bratten HeadshotOriginally from Marrero, Louisiana, April Michelle Bratten has a BA in English from Minot State University in North Dakota, where she currently resides.

The daughter of an USAF active duty father, April grew up traveling and living across the United States and abroad. Her travels have greatly influenced her writing over the years, particularly her three year stay in Incirlik, Turkey. April adores the quiet beauty of the upper-midwest prairies, but she feels the most at home in the American deep south.

Her publications include decomP, Thrush Poetry Journal, Southeast Review, Stirring, Sheepshead Review, and Punchnel’s, among others. She is the Supreme Empress of Up the Staircase Quarterly and a contributing editor at Words Dance Publishing.

April’s next chapbook, Anne with an E, is forthcoming from dancing girl press in 2015. Her other chapbooks include Raw Dogs and Other Metaphors (Maverick Duck Press, 2012) and Drink This (Citizens for Decent Literature Press, 2012.) Her first full length poetry collection, It Broke Anyway, is available now from NeoPoiesis Press.
