Tamara Sellman ("Traveling Salesman"): "Professionally, I serve as editor and publisher of MARGIN: Exploring Modern Magical Realism . I'm an active member of PEN USA West (Washington Chapter) and Jane's Stories Press Foundation, a women's writing collective.

"My poetry has been published widely. In 2002, my poems appeared in Edge City Review, Peralta Press, The Griffin, ByLine, Alligator Juniper, Tower Poetry, Segue, Facets, and Artemis. My poetry was also selected for the Bainbridge Island Arts & Humanities Council's 2002 inquiry on food, "Eat Your Words," as well as the King County Poetry on the Buses public art project. I anticipate publication of my poems in Poetry Midwest and ByLine in 2003.
