Lisa Rosinsky was selected as the 2016-2017 Associates of the Boston Public Library Writer-in-Residence. Kirkus called her debut young adult novel, Inevitable and Only, “an excellent read.” It was a School Library Journal “New and Forthcoming Title to Know About” and one of Barnes & Noble Teen’s top 12 “Most Anticipated Indie Titles of 2017.”
Once upon a time, Lisa was half of a two-person traveling production of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe–which was almost as much fun as her current job, Senior Editor at Barefoot Books. There she also writes picture books and board books under the pen name Skye Silver.
Lisa has an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where she was a 2016 Robert Pinsky Teaching Fellow and a teaching artist at the Boston Arts Academy. She has twice been a finalist for the Morton Marr Poetry Prize. Her poems, about everything from love to dinosaurs, have appeared in Prairie Schooner, The Cimarron Review, Mid-American Review, Measure, 32 Poems, Hunger Mountain, The Baltimore Review, Iron Horse Literary Review, and other journals.
