Anne Jennings Paris
Anne is a writer and artist who lives and teaches in Oregon City. She has twice been the recipient of an Academy of American Poets Prize. Anne attended Wesleyan University and later earned an MFA in creative writing from San Jose State University. Anne’s work tends to focus on the intersection of American popular culture and the natural world. Killing George Washington, her first collection of poetry, presents—in verse form—the stories of five real-life figures of the American West, several with ties to the Portland area. Anne is currently working on a children’s book that will be published as an iPad app. Anne can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
