More than 500 of Bertha Rogers’s poems have been published in journals and anthologies; and in several chapbooks and full-length collections, among them Wild, Again (Salmon, 2019); Heart Turned Back (Salmon, 2011); and Sleeper, You Wake (Mellen, 1991).
She is completing What Want Brings: New and Selected Poems (also to be published by Salmon in 2022). Her translation of Beowulf was published by Birch Brook PRESS in 2000, and her translation and illuminations of the riddle-poems in the thousand-year-old Anglo-Saxon Exeter Book were published as Uncommon Creatures (Six Swans Artist Editions) in 2019. She co-founded Bright Hill Press & Literary Center of the Catskills in 1992; although retired, as a master teaching artist, she still leads literary workshops and edits poetry collections for the Press and other organizations. She lives on a mountain in New York’s western Catskills.
