Kim Baker


When she isn't teaching the abundant virtues of the comma at Roger Williams University School of Law, writing poetry about big hair and Elvis, and doing the Cha Cha, Kim Baker works to end violence against women.

Kim's poems have been published online and in print and essays broadcast on NPR. Three short plays have been stage-read at Culture*Park in New Bedford.

Kim's first chapbook of poetry, Under the Influence: Musings about Poems and Paintings, is now available from Finishing Line Press.

She is currently working on a book of ekphrasis poems about the stories and portrayals of women in the paintings of female artists.

Kim also edits the online poetry journal Word Soup End Hunger. The theme is always hunger, however the poet interprets it. 100% of the submission fees are donated to a food bank.

Kim talks about Writer, Performer, Truth Teller: Christine Rathbun Ernst

I first heard Christine perform poetry at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. Open mic. She laid down a poem so emotional and honest that I left wondering who this powerhouse was.
