Tricia Marcella Cimera is an obsessed reader and lover of words. Look for her work in these diverse places and elsewhere: The Buddhist Poetry Review, Dead Snakes, Foliate Oak, Fox Adoption, Hedgerow, I Am Not A Silent Poet, Jellyfish Whispers, Mad Swirl, Peeking Cat Poetry, Silver Birch Press, Stepping Stones and Yellow Chair Review. Her poem “The Swear Poem” will be included in the Chicago Poetry Press/Journal of Modern Poetry’s Poetry of Protest edition (JOMP 19).
Her poetry is publically displayed in installations for the City of Aurora’s Celebration of Poetry in Public Places and the Highland Park Library for April 2016-National Poetry Month. She recently read at the Elgin Literary Festival.
Tricia volunteers locally, believes there’s no place like her own backyard, and has traveled the world (including Graceland!). She lives with her husband and family of animals in Illinois/in a town called St. Charles/by a river named Fox.
