Joan Barasovska lives in Orange County, close to Carrboro. She has a private practice in academic therapy, working with children with a variety of challenging school problems. Joan started writing when she was ten and finds that as she gets older she writes fewer, better poems. She is a co-host of the Flyleaf Books Second Thursday Poetry Reading Series in Chapel Hill and serves on the board of the North Carolina Poetry Society. The poetry community of the Triangle has become an encouraging, embracing force in Joan’s life.
