Sarah Browning is a poet, editor and organizer committed to promoting poetry that speaks to everyday people, that names injustices, or imagines better futures for ourselves and our societies. Passionate about creating opportunities for other poets to express themselves, she co-edited D.C. Poets Against the War: An Anthology and coordinates the group of the same name. Sarah also plans the Split This Rock Poetry Festival, held each year in March in D.C. Browning was previously associate director of The Fund for Women Artists, building public support for women artists, and founding director of Amherst Writers & Artists Institute, providing creative writing workshops for low-income women and youth. She is administrator of the National Award for Arts Writing at The Arts Club of Washington.
Sarah's poems have been published in dozens of journals, including the Seattle Review, Sycamore Review, and Shenandoah. She is the recipient of a D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities Individual Artist Grant and the People Before Profits Poetry Prize. Sarah's first book of poems, Whiskey in the Garden of Eden, was released in 2007 by The Word Works.
In her own poetry, she often grapples with social forces that shape our lives - from economic and racial inequality to militarism and the impacts of American policy abroad. Sarah believes that poetry can challenge, provoke, and lead the way to a better world. We are so delighted she has joined us here. She welcomes your mail - womenarts2 at aol dot com.
