Sou MacMillan is a muisicain and writer who thinks of poetry as a much underestimated form of music. She believes strongly in the spirituality of art, and considers performance po8ry to be the canvas for the fusion of the body and the things we can't always see or touch. Her new chapbook, Ark, is the next logical step towards where she wants to go after the 2001 release of All The Missing Things That I Love (both available from Doublebunny Press). She has been published in numerous anthologies, including the 1995 Bottomdog Coffeehouse Anthology and Manic D Press's, Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance Poetry, as well as publication in 2X4, Poetry Fly, and The Boston Poet. She has competed on four National Poetry Slam teams for Worcester, MA, including the championship finalist team in 1998 at CT, and has completed two novels, the most recent, Chrysanthemum, currently being shopped. She has her BA in Russian Literature from Ohio State University. Sou lives in Worcester with her husband and son, where she plays in an acoustic band called Daily Mouse.
