About


          Tina Barr grew up on the north shore of Long Island, New York.  As a child she was fascinated by myth and fairy tales, an interest she brought to bear in her doctoral dissertation, entitled "The War of Myths: From Modernist Archetype to Postmodernist Cartoon."  She lives with her husband, Jazz composer and pianist Michael Jefry Stevens, in a cabin on the side of a mountain, in Black Mountain, North Carolina.   She is currently working on a third full-length collection of poems, which incorporate mythic, Biblical and folk references, and are located not only in the rural landscape where she lives, but refer to her experiences in the Middle East and in the inner landscapes the imagination creates.  Her second full-length collection, Kaleidoscope, was released in 2015 by Iris Press.
