Annie Lighthart

Annie Lighthart started writing poetry after her first visit to an Oregon old-growth forest. Iron String, her first poetry collection, was published in 2013 by Airlie Press, and her second, Lantern, was published by Wells College Press in 2017. Her poetry has been featured on The Writer’s Almanac and in various anthologies, including most recently Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems. Annie’s poems have been turned into choral music, used in projects in Ireland, England, and New Zealand, and have traveled farther than she has.
