M R Baird

Rachel Elion Baird
Martha's Vineyard
M R Baird is a writer, poet and former theologian whose work appears in numerous publications including Poetry Scotland, South Light, Into the Void, New Millennium Writings and Cape Cod Poetry Review. Offering up poems as a language of shared experience, her poems walk the eco-tone, with humanity as the meeting point between circumstance and will, heaven and earth, awake and gone. Baird is Creative Editor at Plum Press. She is the author of two poetry collections: Uplands, and Valentines and other Tragedies. She is currently putting the finishing touches on a hybrid narrative project, Weather Girl. M. R. Baird resides among her ancestral lands of Scotland and the island of Martha’s Vineyard, MA.
