In what seems to her like a former lifetime, Stephanie L. Harper earned a B.A. with majors in English and German from Grinnell College, and an M.A. in German literature from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. After a twenty-two year hiatus from academia—during which time she mothered and home schooled two extraordinary children—she has begun studies toward an M.F.A. in Poetry at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. Harper is a Pushcart Prize nominee, author of the chapbooks, This Being Done (Finishing Line Press) and The Death’s-Head’s Testament (Main Street Rag), and recently judged the 2019 AWP Intro Journals Prize in Poetry. Her poems have appeared in such journals and anthologies as Slippery Elm Literary Journal, Panoply, Califragile, Isacoustic*, Rat’s Ass Review, Underfoot Poetry, Eclectica, Cathexis Northwest, Prometheus Dreaming, Stories That Need to Be Told (TulipTree Publishing, LLC), The Larger Geometry (peaceCENTERbooks), and elsewhere. Additionally, she is the cover artist for Robert Okaji’s poetry chapbooks, From Every Moment A Second (available at AMAZON) and The Sadnesses of Old Fences (forthcoming from Clade Song Press).
