Annaliese Jakimides' essays, poetry, and short stories have been published in Hip Mama, The MacGuffin, Puckerbrush Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Southeast Review, Animus, Maine Times, Bangor Metro, and GQ Italy, among others. Essays have been included in collections such as The Essential Hip Mama and Room to Grow ("Choice" is currently required reading for all incoming freshmen at the University of South Carolina). Short fiction is forthcoming in Leaving Home, a collection edited by Molly McQuade. She recently returned from an East Coast reading tour with other contributors to the collection The Essential Hip Mama. Her poem "Dragon of Light in the Water" was awarded the Friends of Acadia Prize for Poetry in 2004. Her short stories have been cited in national competitions.
Annaliese is a freelance copy editor and the assistant director of the Belfast Poetry Festival, 10/7-10/9, 2005. She was educated at Girls' Latin School, Boston, Middlebury College, and Vermont College. She has taught at the Young Writers' Symposium at Haystack, Voices in the North Country Writers Conference, Schoodic Arts Festival, the Maine Women's Studies conferences, and New England Reading Association and Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance events, among others.
It is important to Annaliese that her collages tell a story, as her written works do. Her mixed media works employ pressed botanicals, metals, fiber, and other materials. Although her work is/has been shown at North Country Textiles in Blue Hill and Leapin' Lizard Gallery in Bar Harbor, it is normally sold privately.
A longtime resident of Mt. Chase, she now lives in Bangor. She is at work on a collection of essays and short fiction.
