Poet-photographer, Sharon Auberle, grew up in the Midwest exploring fields, woods, and waters, often in the company of her grandfather, who passed his love of the outdoors to her. With this heritage, her years of living in the Southwest, and now in Door County, she finds much to draw on in her writing and photography.
When not writing, Sharon Auberle may be found hanging pictures and poems at her website--Mimi's Golightly Café, which she has authored for nine years. Her work has appeared in numerous publications and anthologies, both print and on-line, and she has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Auberle has facilitated workshops at The Clearing School in Door County, and at Scandia Village--a Sister Bay Retirement Center, as well as children's poetry writing workshops through the Gibraltar school and Sister Bay library summer program. She has collaborated with poets in Australia and Vietnam for a world writing project called Conversations Across Borders and recently participated in a group of poets teaming with musicians to combine the spoken word with music in a program called Words On Fire.
Auberle is the author of three books--Saturday Nights at the Crystal Ball; a Memoir in Poetry; and Crow Ink, and EVErywoman, both of which contain her photos; as well as a recent collaboration with poet Ralph Murre in a book called Wind Where Music Was. Her photos are also featured in poets Jeanie Tomasko and Alice D'Alessio's books. A CD of her spoken poetry--Something After Burning is available.
