Joshua Sullivan is a poet living with his wife and daughter in central Maine. He holds degrees from the University of Massachusetts Lowell (BA in English) and Iowa State University (MA in English). He is currently a co-owner and manager of Meridians, a wine and beer shop in Fairfield, as well as a composition instructor at Thomas College in Waterville. He also works seasonally on local farms and volunteers with other agricultural projects in the area.
Sullivan's poems currently appear in Quiddity, Midwestern Gothic, The Fourth River, and The Café Review. He is also the author of an article of literary criticism on Henry Beston, "'The Starry Plough': Environmental and Communal Continuity in Henry Beston’s Northern Farm," which appears in the fall 2014 edition of Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment. Beston won national acclaim in the early to mid-twentieth-century for his non-fiction narrative, The Outermost House. He is particularly well-loved in Maine, where he spent the second half of his life and composed essays, children’s stories, and place-based narratives that celebrate the natural world and agrarian traditions.
