March -- Lisa Roberts
Lisa Roberts writes, “In 2006, I was careening toward the age at which my mother had died. When I crashed into that barrier—and came out the other side, heart thumping, cheeks huffing—poems started to pulse in me. And pour out. Now I write to keep being amazed I’m alive.”
Born in Michigan, Lisa studied English at Princeton and The University of Virginia. She has taught literature and writing in Hong Kong, Charlottesville, Las Vegas, and, after 1993, Lincoln, Nebraska, where she lives today with her daughter and husband. Her work is forthcoming in The Untidy Season: An Anthology of Nebraska Women Poets.

June -- Marge Saiser & Barbara Schmitz
July -- Tuesdays With Writers 12th Birthday,
with Jen Davis-Korn
Jennifer was first set free to write whatever she wanted by her third grade teacher Mrs. Kruse. Ever since then, she's been lucky enough to land a string of great teachers, like Deborah McGinn, and mentors, like Rex Walton, to encourage and coax her writing whims into their present fiction state. She is fortunate to have earned the trust of the good people of Tuesdays With Writers where she has made a nice and comfortable writing home. Now she promises to bring you danger, excitement, and thrills with a sampling from her collection of chapters from a long work titled "Parks and Recreation."
