Hi! I’m Danielle Alexander, a writer based in Portland, Oregon. My work has appeared in The Bandit Zine’s Love & Heartbreak Issue and the Aquinas College Sampler, where my poem Mother received an American Academy of Poet’s Honorable Mention. I used to own and operate a little book and zine shop called Bombadil Books in Grand Rapids, MI.
I’m a big fan of self-publishing and making artists books. Notable self-publications include two poetry chapbooks: Sunlight Gets Through (2016) and Chasing Rabbits (2016); two collaborative artist’s books, We Sit Together, At the Table (2015) and White Walls: Entelechia (2015); and Ten Lists: A Workbook for Anxiety (2017). You can purchase the latter here.
I have a BFA in English and Creative Writing from Aquinas College and currently work in political communications. I’m expecting my first child in June 2019 with my talented partner Jeff Hammond.
