Pattie Palmer-Baker is a Portland OR artist and poet. Over the years of exhibiting her artwork—a combination of paste paper collages with her poetry in calligraphic form—she discovered that despite what people may believe, like poetry, many liked the poems better than the visual art. She now concentrates on writing both poetry and personal essays. Nominated for the Pushcart Poetry Prize and published in many journals, including five Poeming Pigeons Anthologies; Voicecatcher; The Best of Voicecatcher; Ghazal Page; Calyx; The Art and Science of Psychotherapy; and Phantom Drift, she is the first prizewinner in 2016 Timberline Review, first and second prize and the Bivona prize for the best overall entry for the Ageless Authors Anthology 2019, and winner of the 2020 first prize in the Central Oregon Writers’ Guild contest. She is also the Del Sol publication first prize winner for the most promising novel in 2017.
