Leland Kinsey was born and raised on a farm in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom where his ancestors settled in the early 1800s. He has conducted writing workshops for the Vermont Arts Council and the Children’s Literacy Foundation at over 100 schools in New Hampshire and Vermont. Since receiving his M.A., Leland has worked as a farmhand, printer and horse trainer and has taught courses at Elderhostel in writing, birding, astronomy and canoeing. He has published six collections of poetry, including In the Rain Shadow, Sledding on Hospital Hill and The Immigrant’s Contract. Vermont’s State Poet Laureate Sydney Lea has praised Leland’s most recent collection, Winter Ready, as “… chronicling the profoundest Vermont anyone might possibly know.”
