Alice Osborn’s past educational and work experience is unusually varied, and it now feeds her work as a poet, as well as an editor-for-hire, writing coach and dynamic speaker/facilitator. After the Steaming Stops is her most recent collection of poetry; previous collections are Right Lane Ends and Unfinished Projects. Alice is also the editor of the short fiction anthology, Tattoos and the forthcoming Homes and Houses Anthology, both from Main Street Rag. She’s currently at work on her upcoming collection, Heroes without Capes. A Pushcart Prize nominee, her work has appeared in the News and Observer, The Broad River Review, The Pedestal Magazine, Soundings Review and in numerous journals and anthologies. She serves on the NC Writers’ Network Board of Trustees and volunteers for writing events whenever she can. When she’s not editing or writing, Alice is an Irish step dancer, as well as an aspiring musician on guitar and violin. She lives in Raleigh with her husband, two children and three birds.
