GENNAROSE NETHERCOTT is the author of The Lumberjack’s Dove (Ecco/HarperCollins, 2018), selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series. Her other projects include A Ghost of Water (an ekphrastic collaboration with printmaker Susan Osgood) and the narrative song collection Modern Ballads. Her work has appeared in The Offing, Rust & Moth, PANK, and elsewhere, and she has been a writer-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center, Art Farm Nebraska, and the Shakespeare & Company bookstore in Paris. She is currently a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellow.
Nethercott tours nationally and internationally composing poems-to-order for strangers on a 1952 Hermes Rocket typewriter-- and is the founder of the Traveling Poetry Emporium, a team of poets-for-hire. She holds a degree in poetry, theatre, and folklore from Hampshire College. A born Vermonter, she has lived in many cities across the US and Europe, but is always drawn back to the forest.
