Alice Templeton, Janet Jennings, Bonnie McManis

Alice Templeton’s poems have appeared in Poetry, Calyx, Asheville Poetry Review, and elsewhere, and her chapbook Archaeology won the 2008 New Women’s Voices Prize in Poetry from Finishing Line Press. Alice has been a resident at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, le Moulin a Nef (France), Blue Mountain Center, Vermont Studio Center, and the Millay Colony. She teaches creative writing and humanities at the Art Institute of California-San Francisco.

Bonnie McManis grew up in small-town rural Oregon. She studied languages at U of O, and moved to San Francisco the day after graduation. She owned and operated Fabulous Foods Catering for many years. She also worked as a chef, restaurant manager, and event coordinator. Bonnie began writing about five years ago during a personal crisis, and loves it--and the new friends she has found in writing groups and the literary community. She served for one year on the board of Bay Area Generations, an inter-generational reading event, and was published in the California Quarterly last December. She lives in the Oakland Hills with her husband. 

Janet Jennings’ poetry and flash fiction have appeared in Agni Online, Nimrod, Shenandoah, Spillway, TriQuarterly, and Verse Daily, among others. Traces in Water, a poetry chapbook, was published in 2010. She lives in San Anselmo, California, with her husband and twin daughters.
