Alex C. Eisenberg is a child of the western high desert and the pacific northwest rainforest, with ancestral ties to Eastern Europe. Her soul is rooted in these wonderful landscapes and her writing springs forth from that connection.

Her debut chapbook, Holy Ground, celebrates the resiliance and beauty of the Snoqualmie Valley and her own body while grieving the aggregious violations of rape and unchecked development upon them. Holy Ground won the 2016 Black Dog Arts Coalition Chapbook Prize and was published in limited edition with Lucky Rabbit Press.

Alex’s poems have also appeared with About Place Journal, River Heron Review, Passengers Journal, Wards Lit Magazine, and Anti-Heroin Chic, among others. (see “Published Works” page for full list).

Her works in progress include What Grows at the Gates of Death, a chapbook of poetry and photography from her time in Poland exploring the Shoah, and Death Day Party, another small book of poems about her experience accompanying a friend on his journey with assisted suicide.

In college, she worked at The Evergreen State Collage Writing Center as a peer tutor and co-edited for Inkwell Magazine. Now she is on-boarding as a co-editor for Inner Sleeve Magazine.

Alex currently lives by candlelight with her partner, their beloved cats, and a flock of misfit chickens, on their off-grid homestead in the foothills of the Olympic Mountains.
