Friday Culture: Mary Biddinger

Mary Biddinger is a poet and professor living in Akron, Ohio. She was born in California, she attended the University of Michigan, Bowling Green State University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently, she is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Akron.

Biddinger's work is wonderfully Midwestern in character, and she brings that lens to topics like love and relationships. She blends social commentary and personal awareness without sacrificing beauty. Take a moment today and get to know this poet. I'll let her work speak for itself... here are three poems:

A Hex Symbol and Bildungsroman

Portrait of Myself as a Piece of Red Candy in Your Mouth
