Michele Karas studies poetry and fiction writing in the MFA program at the City College of New York, where she recently received the 2014 Stark Award for Poetry. She has contributed work to several literary journals, including Pea River Journal, Promethean, and Right Hand Pointing. Her poem “Lemon Blossom Lane” can be read in the Spring & Summer issue of Alaska Quarterly Review. By day, Michele works as a professional copywriter, crafting promotional content for bestselling authors, Fortune 500 clients, and her less-wordy colleagues and friends. Together with her photographer husband, Ber Murphy, and two geriatric Sphynx cats, Michele divides her time between Long Island City, Queens, and the little red cottage in upstate New York they call Smallpeace.
