Alexis writes for those who look to ground themselves in the familiarity of emotion found in poetry. She aims to create a tangible experience, something that is understood in the bones before the brain. She has been published in Upper Mississippi Harvest, Fourth and Sycamore, and Sonder Midwest. She lives in Minnesota where it’s cold most of the year – perfect writing weather. She enjoys a good cup of coffee and will read just about anything but has an affinity for writing that feels like jumping into the deep end.
