Rogers Website

Pattiann Rogers was born in Joplin, Missouri, and graduated from the University of Missouri with a B.A. in Literature and a minor in Zoology. She garnered an M.A. in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing from the University of Houston and has been a visiting poet and lecturer at colleges and universities across the country. Her poems are especially noteworthy because in them she combines scientific language and concepts with questions of cultural and spiritual values. "The discipline of science," Rogers notes, "provides a balance, a guard against an overly sentimental view of the physical world around us."
