Hi! My name is Alice and I'm a poet, freelance writer, teacher, editor, and author of Right Lane Ends, my first book of poetry (Catawba, 2006). I believe in good chocolate, good manners and good driving just like I believe in good writing. Since I was a fourth grader, I've known I wanted to be a writer. However, I didn't seriously jump into a writing career until 2003 where I found my voice through poems, journals, and stories. Writing poetry helps me examine the intricacies and ironies of life and relationships through sound, words, and images. I enjoy writing memoir poems in free verse (many of my poems spring from my childhood), as well as historical and narrative poems. In addition, I also teach memoir, journaling, poetry and fiction to adults and middle school students. I grew up in the Washington, D.C. area and now live in Raleigh, NC with my husband, son, and daughter.
"Whether the subject is small or momentous, Alice Osborn treats every experience with memorable images and sharp vision. She is sometimes ironic, sometimes angry, sometimes poignant ― and always honest. You'll remember these poems."
