My name is Alyssa Froehling and I am poet based in Columbus, Ohio. I am a current MFA candidate in poetry at The Ohio State University. In 2017, I graduated from Augustana College with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing, as well as a minor in Women & Gender Studies. Upon graduating, I was named the recipient of the Roald Tweet Scholar in English Studies award. During my undergraduate studies I was mentored by poet and professor Rebecca L. Wee.
I am the former editor-in-chief of SAGA, Augustana's art & literary magazine, a position I served for two years. From 2015 to 2018, I acted as poetry editor under founder Alexandria Petrassi at Floodmark Poetry, a blog designed to inspire and motivate writers of all ages and skill levels.
My poems have appeared or as forthcoming in The Seldom Review, Alien Mouth, SAGA, Periphery, Words Dance, and F(r)iction. In late summer of 2017, I was named winner of F(r)iction's spring poetry contest, judged by Maggie Smith.
