Elizabeth Garber

As the 2006 Poet Laureate of Belfast, Maine, Elizabeth Garber coordinated monthly poetry readings and wrote a weekly poetry column published in three midcoast papers highlighting Maine poets.  She is the author of three books of poetry, True Affections: Poems from a Small Town (2012), Listening Inside the Dance (2005), and Pierced by the Seasons (2004).  Three of her poems have been read by Garrison Keillor on The Writer’s Almanac, and her poem “Feasting” was included in his Good Poems for Hard Times.  She is the founder of the Illuminated Sea Press, encouraging the independent publishing of Maine poets.
