Ann Applegarth

Ann Applegarth, Roswell NM

Born in Kansas, Ann Applegarth grew up in Clovis, New Mexico, attended high school in Terrell, Texas, and lived in Houston, Fort Knox, Artesia, Roswell, Albuquerque, and Eugene (Oregon) before returning to her favorite town – Roswell.

A 1990 honors graduate of the University of Oregon, Ann also attended the University of New Mexico, where she won a 1980 Academy of American Poets prize.  Her poet’s life experience credentials include flying high (literally - in airplanes from Piper Cubs to 757s, helicopters, hot-air balloons, and the Goodyear Blimp) and working at a variety of jobs - lifeguard, secretary, janitor, model, teacher, newspaper carrier, math manuscript typist, book reviewer, babysitter, horse stall mucker, and proofreader (ed. note: another kind of mucking out) for the Northwest Review and other publications.

Ann’s poems have appeared in Conceptions Southwest, Sin Fronteras, South Valley Ink, St. Anthony Messenger, West Wind Review, Bellowing Ark, Christianity & Literature, Denali, Cross Timbers Review, among other publications, and have been anthologized in The Hungry Poets' Cookbook and Shadow and Light: Literature and the Life of Faith.
