Connie Colwell Miller is a professional editor, freelance writer, and sometimes English teacher from Cottage Grove, Minnesota. Her published poetry has appeared in a handful of literary journals, including Potato Eyes, Artisan, and The Briar Cliff Review. She received her Master of Fine Arts degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato, where her graduate thesis won the Toy Blethen Award for Distinguished Poetry in 2002.
Currently she lives in Mankato, Minnesota, with her husband and two children: one feisty, the other feistier.
Whether Connie Colwell Miller writes of a red-tailed hawk hunting for mice or a lover’s underwear crumpled on the floor, her voice is filled with a revealing breathe of candor. The poems in Bodywearers draw our attention to the small details in nature and of the body, often showing us beauty where we may not have expected it.
