Erica Charis-Molling is a poet, educator, and librarian. Her writing has been published in Crosswinds, Presence, Glass, Anchor, Vinyl, Entropy, and Mezzo Cammin and is forthcoming in Redivider. She has taught workshops at the Boston Public Library and online courses for Berklee Online. Her work in libraries has included service in academic and public environments in a variety of roles.

She currently lives in Boston with her wife Beth and her fur children Juno & Simon. When she’s not reading, writing, or helping others do so, she might be in the kitchen trying to figure out what else one can do with zucchini from her farm share or on her bike chasing her next triathlon participation medal and post-race beer.
