Kali Lightfoot

Retired Executive Director of the National Resource Center for Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes, I earned an MFA in Poetry at Vermont College of Fine Arts in July 2015. I live in Salem, MA. My poems and reviews of poetry books have been published in a number of journals and anthologies. I won Honorable Mention in the 2014 Science Fiction Poetry Association Contest and the 2015 Marblehead Arts Festival; and Poetry South nominated "Cousin Margaret's Friend, 1955" for a Pushcart Prize. When not writing, I love to kayak, hike, walk in pretty places, and read.
