Colette Jonopulos lives, writes, and edits near Sloan's Lake in Edgewater, Colorado. She can see downtown Denver to the east, and the magnificent Rocky Mountains to the west, so she's rarely lost.
Colette's poems have appeared or will be appearing in Alimentum, Bellingham Review Online, Crab Orchard Review, Clackamas Literary Review, Contemporary Haibun Online, Ekphrasis, MS: poemsmemoirstory, North Coast Squid, and others. She's had two non-fiction books published by Light & Life Publishing, and two chapbooks, The Burden of Wings, Rattlesnake Press, Sacramento, CA and Enough of Daylight, Uttered Chaos Press, Eugene, OR.
Along with JoAn Osborne, Colette owns and operates a small but vibrant press, Tiger's Eye Press. The press publishes an annual journal, Tiger's Eye: A Journal of Poetry, and three chapbooks yearly. The editors are celebrating their twelfth year in the world of small presses, and looking forward to the next twelve. tigerseyejournal.com
Currently, Colette is working on a non-fiction book, yes, no, maybe. Of all the frustrations writers face, not knowing why your work has been rejected, is one of the largest. This book is the advice she'd give if she could sit down with each poet who has submitted to Tiger's Eye and not been published.
