Judith Barrington

Judith Barrington is a poet and memoirist who has published three collections of poetry, a prize-winning memoir, and a text on writing literary memoir which is used all across the United States and in Australia and Europe. Her most recent poetry is collected in two new chapbooks, Postcard From the Bottom of the Sea and Lost Lands. Her most recent full length book is Horses and the Human Soul. Her fourth full-length collection, The Conversation, will be published by Salmon Press. There will be a launch reading at the Associated Writing Programs Conference in Minneapolis in April. The title poem of the new book was the 2013 winner of the Gregory O'Donoghue International Poetry Prize. Other prizes include the Andres Berger Award for Creative Nonfiction and the Stewart H. Holbrook Award for outstanding contributions to Oregon's literary life (jointly with her spouse, Ruth Gundle). She grew up in England, spent three years in Spain, and has lived in Oregon since 1976.
