On the Loose
Judith Askew has been writing poetry for over four decades. Her writing career began during her college years at The Barnstable Patriot, where she wrote a column and articles during her summer break. Askew also co-edited Out of the Cellar, an anthology of women’s poems (D’Aurora Press), in the early 1970s. Her first collection of poetry, Here at the Edge of the Sea, was published by Artship Publishing in 2009. Before focusing on her own poetry, Askew taught developmental writing for eight years as an adjunct professor at Cape Cod Community College. She lives in Cotuit, MA.

She is the author of the chapbooks "Folding Water," "Hints," and "The Dolphin in the Gowanus." She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and has read her poems on NPR. Recently, her poem "Dead Moon, Brooklyn," was published by Tupelo Quarterly.
Wild Water Child is her newest book, and the second published by Bass River Press.
