Tobey Hiller is the author of six books: a novel, four collections of poetryâ€”the latest CROW MIND from Finishing Line Pressâ€”and, most recently, a book of short stories, FLIGHT ADVICE; A FABULARY, from Unlikely Books, which sheâ€™ll be reading from tonight.

Her poetry and flash can be found in a variety of magazines and anthologies, for instance Ambush Review, Askew, Spillway, Mediterranean Poetry, Shotglass Journal, The Fabulist: Words & Art, Sin Fronteras/Writers without Borders, great weather for MEDIA as well as FIRE AND RAIN: ECOPOETRY OF CALIFORNIA, Scarlet Tanagerâ€™s wonderful collection of California poets and poems.
