Contemporary poet, published internationally, Mary Belardi Erickson has been partial to reading and writing poetry since her childhood in Concord Township, Dodge County, Minnesota. She received a vigorous education in literature and composition at Augsburg College, Drake University, and Purdue University. These were the nomadic years for her: living and working in cities, studying and teaching in universities. The 1990s found her returning to a country setting, Hayes Township, Swift County, Minnesota.

Her poems are now available in online and print journals. She was nominated for Dancz Books Best of the Web 2010. For “As a leaf,” she received 2nd place in the 2009 Numinous Magazine Poetry Prize, New Zealand. Her work appears in Sephyrus Press No Fresh Cut Flowers: Afterlife Anthology and Silver Boomer Books’ From the Porch Swing: Memories of Our Grandparents. Her e-chapbook, Back-stepping Between Two Bridges, is at victorianvioletpress.com, and her website is marybelardierickson.com.
