She took off her wings and shoes
Suzette Marie Bishop teaches writing at Texas A & M International University. This will be her first full-length book, though she's published a chapbook and many individual poems in national poetry journals. Nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize, Ms. Bishop's credits include publications in Antioch Review, 13th Moon, Eratica, Aries, The Little Magazine, and many other literary journals. As a poet and writing teacher on the faculty of Texas A & M International, she gives many readings, as well as workshops for gifted children, seniors, and other writers on the US-Mexico border; she has worked with at-risk youth and with the rural Hispanic community.
