Barbara Schweitzer started out as a poet and now writes fiction, essays, and plays as well. Her poems have won prizes and two fellowships from her home state of RI. Her poetry collection, 33 1/3: Soap Opera Sonnets, was cited as a Best Book for 2008 by the Providence Journal. Her radio essays have been featured on RI’s NPR station in the popular series This I Believe. Her plays have been produced regionally in RI, MA, and ME. Two plays, Leavetaking and Sub-Zero, have been published in anthologies. For three years, Barbara facilitated a dynamic group of poets out of which grew RI’s Origami Poem Project.

Some of these mini mysteries have been published at Cortland Review and have been adapted for the stage. The Wool War, Cyjoe Barker in Amish Country, and Cyjoe Barker at the Theatre were produced at the Artists’ Exchange Black Box New Plays Festival.
