Vicky Lettmann grew up in southeastern North Carolina near the Atlantic Ocean where she learned to love the smell of saltwater tides. She created Turtlehouse Ink and published Beach, a collection of poems with artwork by her mother, Ruth, to capture some of those ocean smells and sounds of her childhood. She is also the co-editor with Carol Roan of When Last on Mountain: The View from Writers over 50. Her most recent publication is a chapbook of her poems, What Can Be Saved, new in 2015.
All books will be available for signing and purchase.
For over thirty years, she taught writing and literature at a community college in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she founded and edited the literary arts magazine Under Construction. She also served as an editor for Speakeasy, a literary magazine published by the Loft Literary Center. She writes poetry, stories, and short essays and teaches writing workshops in Minneapolis and in Sanibel, Florida, where she and her husband, John, spend the winters.
