Former Judge, USA

Tara Bunch, loves a good story. Her writing career began with storytelling; as a small child, she’d often gather an audience into the living room and with the help of props, perform her own imagined stories for them.

As she grew older, Tara began writing poetry in addition to prose, and studied both as an undergrad at the University of Maine at Farmington. While there, she earned a spot in an undergraduate research scholar program for one of her fiction projects, and was presented with the fiction award for her graduating class. A couple years later, Tara won a state poetry competition, held by the largest poetry festival in Maine.

Her professional background includes teaching English and working in publishing. A recent MFA graduate from Lesley University, Tara is currently working on a collection of poems.
