S.E. Gilman has published articles, short fiction, and poems since the 1970s and with some amazement, she’s still writing.  She taught writing at Bloomsburg University and was a featured speaker on campus in the Big Dog Reading Series.  Her work has appeared in Meat for Tea, Word Fountain, The Portland Review, The Distillery, Permafrost, Stone Drum, Interstate, and other small press magazines  She used to be a beautiful young flower and now she is an old fruit.  But now she has a doctorate.
