Selections from Mid-Atlantic Review also will be presented. The author of three poetry collections—Mother Quiet (Zoo Press, 2005), Perfect Disappearance (New Issues Press, 2000) and At the Gate (Provincetown Arts, 1995)—Rhodes teaches at the M.F.A.

Rhodes has earned praise for her poetry. Perfect Disappearance won the inaugural Green Rose Prize from New Issues and Western Michigan University.
