Reader Meet Writer : Authors

Alice Osborn 

My Website My Blog Hi! My name is Alice and I'm a poet, freelance writer, teacher, editor, and author of Right Lane Ends, my first book of poetry (Catawba, 2006). Since I was a fourth grade, I've known I wanted to be a writer. However, I didn't seriously jump into a writing career until 2003 where I found my voice through poems, journals, and stories. Writing poetry helps me examine the intricacies and ironies of life and relationships through sound, words, and images. I enjoy writing memoir poems in free verse (many of my poems spring from my childhood), as well as historical and narrative poems. In addition, I also teach memoir, journaling, poetry and fiction to adults and middle school students. My favorite section of the Sunday paper is the Arts and Living section of the News & Observer and on my nightstand you'll find books I need to review for Pedestal Magazine, along with a few nonfiction favorites such as In Cold Blood by Truman Capote and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer. I grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and now live in Raleigh, NC with my husband, son, and daughter.
