A Poet's Double Life

For poets working outside the literary world.

About the Poet

Pamela Taylor is a data guru by day and a poet by night.  As co-organizer of Living Poetry, she sends out the Monday morning poetry prompts. She has a doctorate in social psychology from UCLA, a MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and is a Cave Canem Fellow. When she is not working or writing, she’s dancing Argentine tango in the Triangle. Pamela’s first chapbook of poetry, My Mother’s Child, will be published by Hyacinth Girl Press in early 2015.
