Born hard of hearing and adopted in Luxembourg, Kelly Sargent grew up with a deaf twin sister in Europe and the United States. She has written for SIGNews, a national newspaper for the Deaf, and worked in educational settings with deaf students. Her poetry and artwork in the past year, including a Best of the Net nominee, appeared in more than thirty literary publications in the U.S. and abroad. She serves as the creative nonfiction editor and an assistant nonfiction editor for two literary journals, as well as an editor for an international poetry anthology publisher. She also reviews for a literary magazine dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of sexual violence survivors. Residing in picturesque Vermont with her family, she also enjoys writing stories for children. A children’s book entitled Sundae Sundays is due out later this year.
