Annette Gagliardi

Annette Gagliardi is a poet whose work has appeared in literary journals in Canada, England, and the US. Her first full-length poetry collection, titled A Short Supply of Viability, was published through The Poetry Box. Gagliardi notices the intricate details of lives lived around her. She notices the dimensions of nature, time, and the human condition and tries to understand this world and share that understanding with others. The fact that she quilts, gardens, serves tea parties, cares for children, cans, and bakes provides grist for the poems and stories she creates.
