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.   Her third full-length collection of poems, Green Target, won the Barrow Street Press Book Prize, judged by Patricia Spears Jones, and will be published in the Fall of 2018.  Her second full-length collection, Kaleidoscope, was released in 2015 by Iris Press.
