Ellen Wade Beals


The gingko fan waves
Sayonara, then teeters,
swoons, like faint of heart.

Trained as a journalist, Ellen Wade Beals writes poetry and prose. Her work has appeared in literary magazines, in anthologies and on the web. In 1999, her short story, “Picking,” was awarded Willow Springs fiction prize and her poetry has placed in local contests (sponsored by Evanston Library, The Guild Complex, and http://www.chicagopoetry.com). Her poem “Between the sheets” appears in the textbook Everything’s a Text (Pearson 2010). She is the editor and publisher of Solace in So Many Words (Weighed Words LLC, an imprint of Hourglass Books), and she has been working on a novel for what seems like forever.
