Sandra Beasley

Sandra Beasley is the author of three poetry collections—Count the Waves, I Was the Jukebox (winner of the Barnard Women Poets Prize), and Theories of Falling—as well as a memoir, Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl: Tales from an Allergic Life. In 2018, she edited Vinegar and Char: Verse from the Southern Foodways Alliance. Honors for her work include a 2015 NEA fellowship and four D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities fellowships. She lives in Washington, D.C., and teaches with the University of Tampa low-residency M.F.A. program.

Teaching Style: The tone of Sandra’s workshops is rigorous, with lots of craft talk, but conversational and nurturing. She praises clarity, humor, and risk on the page.
