F.J. Bergmann lives in Wisconsin for the 4th or 5th time, and claims to have an MFA from the School of the Americas. She works as a used-book seller, riding instructor, book designer, editor, and poetry submitter. Previous jobs included rural postal carrier and illustrator for a manual of interesting diseases. At heart a blocked visual artist, she is to blame for madpoetry.org and her own site, fibitz.com, where more of her dubious achievements may be perused. One of her pseudopodia can reach all the way from the bedroom to the refrigerator.
