Mary Margaret A. Blum is New Orleans-born and Kentucky-raised. She sees herself as a philosopher-poet fascinated by regional language and relationships, which often comes across in her poetry. Mary Margaret has loved language from a young age and was even named the 2014 Poet Laureate of her high school (Pope John Paul II High School in Hendersonville, TN). Her other works range in style from lyrical to magical realism (inspired by artists such as Cathy Park Hong, author of Engine Empire). Most importantly, she would like to thank Professor Christopher Kempf for being her best critic and biggest fan.
