Shaindel Beers’ poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies. She is currently an instructor of English at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon, in Eastern Oregon’s high desert and serves as Poetry Editor of Contrary (www.contrarymagazine.com). The Children’s War is her second poetry collection from Salt.
There are so many great writers, it's impossible to name them all, but I hope that in my poetry, readers can see glimpses of Anne Sexton, Anne Carson, Eavan Boland, and Richard Jackson. In fiction, I would be pleased if readers can spot moments that remind them of Lorrie Moore and Ellen Gilchrist.
My second full-length poetry collection, The Children's War and Other Poems, has just been released by Salt Publishing. I am at work on a short story collection and am always working on Contrary (www.contrarymagazine.com), where I am the Poetry Editor.
I am not currently represented by a literary agent or agency.
Reading, writing, running, enjoying the outdoors, taking part in all things liberal, spending time with my partner Jared and our son Liam.
