Week 5 Chapbook Chart 2019 – Tracy Elizabeth Plath and Alicia Sophia Martin


Tracy Elizabeth Plath
is a poet and short story writer who is fortunate to live in the stunning juxtaposition of desert, river, and mountains that is the west side of El Paso, Texas, with her sprawling family. While pursuing degrees in English literature and Anthropology at Indiana University as an adult returning student, she discovered the intense joy and therapeutic healing of poetry and essay writing. She had the great good fortune to marry the love of her life in 2012, and as a poet is simultaneously both nerdishly proud and daunted by the fact that her husband is a distant relative of Sylvia Plath. Her participation in the 2015 and 2016 Poetry Marathons reaped the many layered benefits of intense writing time spent with her daughter, poet Sara Anderson, the deep and sustaining friendships begun on those fateful days such as those with her dear friend, Alicia Sophia Martin and the other members of the writing group, Some Poets, the publication of her first chapbook, Thicker Than Water: Poems From a Life Uncharted, and writing poems for, co-editing and producing three books for Some Poets, 19,751 words. an anthology. by Some Poets., Wicked Words. a chapbook. by Some Poets., and Love. Letters. a chapbook. by Some Poets. She is currently working on a fourth book for Some Poets, a multicultural translation book of poems in foreign languages that reference the many global origins of the Some Poets Members and an English translation for each poem. She is also working on her second solo book, Chains That Bind, an autobiography written in poem and essay format.
