About the Author
Marguerite Costigan is a professional artist, naturalist, and life-long poet. She began writing poetry as a child on her father’s farm in rural Pennsylvania. In high school, her work was included in a National Poetry Anthology. A transplant to California since 1970, her poems embrace multiple themes: the human condition, the environment, war and love. Her work has appeared in Pudding Magazine, Café Solo, Asylum, the anthology Poems for Endangered Places, and the international magazine Le Fenetre. She has taught with the California State Poets in the Schools program, has been reading her work live before Central Coast audiences since the mid-1970’s, and was proclaimed San Luis Obispo County Poet Laureate for 2015-16. Marguerite lives in San Luis Obispo, California with her writer and musician husband and one skittery cat.
