Terry M. Dugan writes poetry and prose about the collateral damage people suffer from wars, gun violence and the AIDS/addiction epidemic. Her work has appeared in Alimentum, Bellevue Literary Review, Womens’ Studies  Quarterly, A&U Magazine,  New Verse News, Inkwell and numerous anthologies including Poetry Ink, The Anthology of New England Poets and Fingernails Across the Chalkboard: Poetry and Prose on HIV/AIDS from the Black Diaspora.

You can find her work in Moonstone Art Center’s New Voices #3 and Featured Poets Anthology, as well as in Hyphen (Temple’s Literary Magazine) and on the websites of Yikes Magazine, Anti-Herion, and Short Edition. When she is not writing, she is jamming out to her “middle school dance 2009-2013” playlist or (most likely) sifting through mountains of homework.
