Margery Snyder

Margery Snyder is a poet, flute-player & accidental photographer who pronounces her first name with a hard ‘g.’ She was born in a small town amid the dry wheatlands in the downwind shadow of the Hanford Atomic Reservation in eastern Washington state, grew up in southern California, studied literature in Santa Barbara, Boston & Chicago before she landed in San Francisco with her partner Whitman McGowan in 1985. Margery began her writing life in short stories & was drawn into poetry by the influence of San Francisco’s community of performing poets at places like Cafe Babar. She is the author of Loving Argument (Viridiana: SF, 1991), The Gods, Their Feathers (Blue Beetle Press: SF, 1993), The Secret Humming (Mel Thompson Publishing: SF, 1994) & Earthly Magic (Deep Forest Press: SF, 2001). Margery is currently at work on Swimming in the Bardo, a chapbook of poems mostly addressed to Whitman, who passed away in 2015.
