Jeanne Lutz currently serves on the board of Cracked Walnut, a traveling Lit Fest reading series in the Midwest. She grew up on a small dairy farm in southern Minnesota, attended the National University of Ireland Galway, and spent two years in Japan. A Pushcart Prize nominee, Best-of-the-Net nominee, and Loft Mentor Series fellow for poetry, she is the author of the chapbook Hearts and Harrows, co-written with Richard Donnelly. Her poetry has turned up in Conduit; The Missouri Review; Tinderbox Poetry Journal; Shot Glass Journal; NonBinary Review; Poetry City, USA; and elsewhere. Live appearances include Adrian Todd Zuniga’s Literary Death Match and the Bay Area’s Litquake. Among the things she can’t do: math in her head, make pie crust, sing, or play the bagpipes. She divides her time between the family farm and working at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
