Kaleena Kovach has found her way back to poetry after a long time away. She attended the CU Boulder where she majored in Creative Writing. Her senior thesis, ashes are just fire ghosts, was a collection of documentary poems that explored the history of fire and utilized text as a visual medium. An active member of the arts community, Kaleena is on the board for Hear, Here! Poetry and regularly reads at local events. When she is not writing poems, she likes to hike, ride her scooter, bake, play ukulele, and hang out with her cats. She works at a nonprofit and plans to pursue a Masters in Social work beginning in the fall 2019.
