Ann Davenport joined QuillsEdge Press as Executive Editor in February 2016, several months after becoming a reader for QuillsEdge. Ann’s background in nonprofit management, and her abiding love and study of poetry, find a joyful nexus in leading the Press. Having obtained her MFA in Poetry and Poetry in Translation at Drew University, Ann is thrilled that working for QuillsEdge Press allows her to keep poetry in her daily life.
Ann is a poet, essayist, translator, critic, and devotee of fresh bread. She has hand-published three chapbooks: ends & beginnings (2000), riparian (2003), and love (2007). Her poetry has been published in Entropy, Bird’s Thumb, The Stillwater Review, Adanna Literary Journal, and Digging through the Fat, and her critical writing has been published in Pleiades: Literature in Context and Adanna Literary Journal. Ann also serves as the layout and graphic designer for Get Fresh Books, as a writing mentor and Board Treasurer for the non-profit Poetry Heals, and recently founded the online literary journal Terra Preta Review. She also offers freelance editing and proofreading services, mentoring, and Tarot readings through her site 31Annotations.
