SAMPLE INTRODUCTION

Judith Barrington is a poet and memoirist. Her most recent book of poems is The Conversation. Thomas McCarthy, in selecting the title poem "The Conversation" as the winner of the 2013 Gregory O'Donoghue International Poetry Prize said: "This is a brilliant technical achievement; it reminds us all that great poetry is both fine thinking and achieved style... [T]his is a mindful, thoughtful, calculated and superbly pre-meditated work."

She has published three other collections of poetry and two poetry chapbooks, a memoir, and a text on writing literary memoir which is used all across the United States and in Australia and Europe. Her memoir, Lifesaving, won the Lambda Book Award and was a finalist for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir.

She is well known as a writer and much sought-after as a teacher. She has been a faculty member of the MFA program at the University of Alaska at Anchorage. She offers workshops at many conferences and writing events in the U.S. as well as in England and Spain.

Judith grew up in England and moved to the United States in 1976. She has lived in Portland, Oregon since then.
