Brenda Taulbee is writing her way across all of the South and West this country has to offer. From Portland, Oregon by way of Montana, she is a candidate for an MFA in Poetry from San Diego State University. Her work explores the messy overlap zones in human relationships and intimacies. Her second collection of poems is slowly materializing from the ether. Her first, The Art of Waking Up, is available on Amazon, used, for real cheap.
