Julie Marie Wade’s first full-length poetry collection, Postage Due, has been published by White Pine Press. Selected for the press’s Marie Alexander Poetry Series, Postage Due “is a scrapbook of poetic artifacts documenting an odd girl’s coming of age. Interspersed with postcards to a lost past, fan letters to childhood heroes, and inhabited voices as varied as Hester Prynne, Mr. Clean, and Vanna White, this collection pulses with kitsch and candor.”
Julie Marie Wade is also the author of the poetry chapbook Without (Finishing Line Press, 2010) and two collections of lyric nonfiction, Wishbone: A Memoir in Fractures (Colgate University Press, 2010) and Small Fires (Sarabande Books, 2011). A new nonfiction chapbook, Tremolo, is forthcoming from Bloom Press in Spring 2013. Wade is the newest member of the creative writing faculty at Florida International University.
