Tibbetts’ book, “Say What You Can,” was published in 2019 by Deerbrook Editions. Her previous book, “Perfect Selves,” won the 2002 Bluestem Poetry Prize. She received a Maine Arts Commission Creative Writing Fellowship. Her work has appeared in numerous journals and has been read on Writers Almanac.
