Awards and Nominations

Kari A. Flickinger spent her childhood wandering aimlessly through the mountains of Northern California. She was a 2019 nominee for Best of the Net and the Rhysling Award, and a finalist in the Iron Horse Literary Review’s 2018 Photo Finish. She is an alumna of UC Berkeley. She is a regular contributor for Headline Poetry & Press, and a reader for Palette Poetry. When she is not writing, she can be found playing her glorious Gibson Hummingbird, and singing to her unreasonably large Highlander cat, Bear. She obsessively over-analyzes the details of neighboring trees.
