Anastacia Tolbert’s work is a syrupy rune—wings, words & why not. She is a Cave Canem Fellow, Hedgebrook Alumna, Jack Straw Writer, EDGE Professional Writer, VONA alum, creative writing workshop facilitator, documentarian, playwright and 5th grade teacher at Seattle Girls’ School. She is writer, co-director, and co-producer of GOTBREAST? Documentary (2007): a documentary about the views of women regarding breast and body image.


Lately Tolbert’s been obsessed with the body and the stories it holds, the fact that dragonflies have six legs but never walk, the apocalypse & what y.o.l.o. might be called if one lived in three lifetimes. Her poetry, fiction & nonfiction have been published widely. Find her on the web at:
