Author Bio: 

Judith Chibante, cancer survivor, left a four-decade career in education to return to her creative writing roots. She was born and raised in rural California, and came of age in the sixties doing farmwork, strict religious practices, and sports in school. She left home at age 18 to go to college in southern California (an unforeseen, ‘epic’ experience), and became just the second in her family to earn a degree.

From college, Judith went into teaching. Most of her experience was in a small high school as an English and remedial reading teacher. Later, she migrated to academia at a major university to work in teacher education; her specialty area was training teachers how to work with children having difficulty learning to read. During this time, she edited a book of poems for teachers; this project became the “trigger” event for her return to writing poetry. Judith lives in Fresno, California with her Tonkinese cat, Meisha, a rambling garden, and a small ‘forest’ of 9 redwoods (each named for a famous poet).
