About the Author
The author of three previous volumes of poetry, Ms. Powers is widely known for her public performance art pieces, which she refers to as Exposure Art. These performances are created in the moment and take art outside of traditional venues, thereby allowing direct engagement with the public in shared spaces.
Last year, she was selected to represent Kansas City's PoUND SLAM team at the 2015 Women of the World Poetry Slam and was voted the Best Poet of Kansas City 2015 in The Pitch Magazine's annual Reader's Choice poll.
Ms. Powers holds degrees in Math and Physics, avidly canoes in the nude, and is currently working on a book of illuminations entitled Chasing the Sun, which she plans to complete during her 2016 Artist in Residency at Osage Arts Community.
