Sheryl Ridenour




I am not convinced of cause and possible effect, but I think single moments have multiple truths and unexamined depth. Poetry gives translation to the variations and repetitions, a reverse to the notion of significant and insignificant in a passing glance. A rhythm exists in these moments, an expanded time in which to wait.

Sheryl Ridenour is a poet with an MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University. She has left several coasts and currently lives in Chicago.
