Aimee Mackovic is a professor, poet, writer, songwriter, screenwriter and 80’s girl who is a little bit Sandra Dee and a little bit Rizzo. She’s the good girl with three tattoos. The champagne-loving bohemian. The home-bodied vagabond.​ (oh, and I teach English Comp, because I need wine.)

She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Wake Forest University and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Spalding University, where she studied with poetic heavy-weights such as Molly Peacock, Rane Arroyo, Greg Pape and Barbra Hamby.

Her work has been published in Elephant Journal, UCity Review, Blood Lotus online journal, Barbaric Yawp, The Cresset and Main Street Rag, among others.

Her first chapbook, A Sentenced Woman, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2007.

Her chapbook Potpourri in 2015 and my chapbok Dearly Beloved: the Prince poems in 2016.
