Virginia Smith Rice writes poetry and teaches art in Woodstock, Illinois. Occasionally, she teaches poetry and writes art. There are also those days when, despite her best intentions, she is most probably doing none of these things.

She earned her MFA in creative writing from Northwestern University and is co-editor of Kettle Blue Review, an online poetry journal.

Virginia’s first poetry collection, When I Wake It Will Be Forever, is now available from Sundress Publications. Some of her individually published poems can be found on the Poems page.

Virginia can be contacted through Kettle Blue Review.

Thanks for stopping by – feel free to look around and read a few poems while you’re here.
