Pattie Palmer-Baker returns to VoiceCatcher as a Summer 2015 issue poetry editor. An artist as well as a poet, she enhances her own artwork with her poetry in calligraphic form. Because so many people have responded even more strongly to the words than the images, she participated in workshops taught by several local well-known poets. To her surprise, she discovered her motivation to write poems surpassed her desire to create visual artwork. She started submitting her poems to journals and her work has appeared in Analeka and Elohi Gadugi, besides VoiceCatcher: a journal of women’s voices & visions. Her poem “50,000 Bumblebees Die” was part of the “Unnatural Acts” exhibit at the Milepost Gallery 5 in Portland. She earned a 2014 Pushcart nomination from VoiceCatcher.
Judith Pulman writes poetry and prose in Portland, where she also translates poems from Russian to English, just to keep things light. She has been published in or has work forthcoming in The Writer’s Chronicle, Los Angeles Review, Brevity, New Ohio Review and VoiceCatcher. She works as a teacher, administrator and editor.
Tammy Robacker served as poet laureate of Tacoma, Washington in 2010-11, and she is a 2011 Hedgebrook writer-in-residence award winner. In 2009, she published her first collection of poetry, The Vicissitudes. Her manuscript We Ate Our Mothers, Girls placed as a finalist in the Floating Bridge Chapbook Contest. Tammy’s poetry has appeared in Canopic Jar, Duende, So to Speak, Crab Creek Review, WomenArts, Comstock Review, Up the Staircase Quarterly, and Cascadia Review. Currently enrolled in the MFA program for Creative Writing at Pacific Lutheran University, Tammy is working on a second poetry book collection and volunteering at CALYX – a feminist press – while living in Oregon.
First-time VoiceCatcher prose editor Christi R. Suzanne left the dry heat of the Arizona desert for mistier climes, and arrived in the Pacific Northwest over twelve years ago. She is a writer and sleeping dog enthusiast. By day she works as a web and communications professional at a university where she is the editor of the quarterly newsletter, Connections. She writes novels, short stories and personal essays and has been published in the anthologies Crack the Spine and Miles to Go, as well as The Lit Pub blog, The National Center for Death with Dignity blog, and the online journals Wonder and Risk and The Splinter Generation.
