Taylor Katz

Taylor Mardis Katz is a poet, herb farmer, and shopkeeper living in Chelsea, VT. A native of New York, she moved to San Diego for three years to study poetry before moving to Vermont with her partner to start Free Verse Farm. She has worked on farms in Costa Rica, San Diego, and France, and for years she worked as a poet for hire, writing poems for strangers who found her on the internet. She is currently submitting her first manuscript, titled Honeymeadow, and estimates that during the winter months, her body is comprised of 30% Vermont cheddar.

Phillip Mulligan

Phillip Mulligan’s poetry circles the need for connection with place with the search for the lightness of a bird in flight.  Born and cultivated as a farmer he left his generational home with his young family for Chelsea, Vermont where they lived for thirty-eight years with pine, a work horse, a flock of sheep and occasional chickens.  Phillip and his wife Susan now live in the city of Lebanon, NH.
