Sharron Singleton

Sharron was born in Chicago and raised in rural Michigan when it was still farm country. She was formerly a Social Worker. She won First Place Prizes in the James River Writer’s Contest, the journal Passager, the Poetry Society of Virginia’s Annual Contest, the MacGuffin Poet Hunt Contest, the Sixfold Contest and the Thomas Merton Award for Poetry of the Sacred. Her chapbook, “A Thin Thread of Water” and her full length manuscript, “Our Hands a Hollow Bowl” was published in 2018. She taught poetry in Charlottesville VA and was the Poetry Editor of Streetlight Magazine. She has two children, grandchildren and a great-grandchild and says she sometimes feels younger now and freer, then when she was nineteen.
