Ellen Welcker’s aesthetic inclinations range from engagement of the lyric to narrative & prose poems. Her work is concerned with ecological desperation, boundaries & borders, the parent-child relationship, & the concept of ‘deep humanity’ as an animal state.
Her books include Ram Hands (Scablands Books, 2016), The Botanical Garden (2009 Astrophil Poetry Prize, Astrophil Press, 2010), and several chapbooks. She collaborates with artists across the spectrum and lives in Spokane, where she works for the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry.
