Kelsey Ann Kerr is one of many writers who climb mountains; she’s summited Mt. Shasta twice and has a whole list left to climb, including Mt. Rainier and hopefully, one day, K2. When she’s not physically climbing, Kelsey can most often be found in her cozy abode in Maryland, where she teaches writing composition and creative writing at the University of Maryland and American University. Kelsey holds an M.F.A. in Poetry from the University of Maryland. Some of her work can be found in The Susquehanna Review, Fractal Literary Magazine, and Slippery Elm. She also was part of Tupelo’s 30/30 Challenge this June.
