Bio

Virginia Kovach is a native Midwesterner, having lived in either Wisconsin or Iowa her entire life. She writes fiction as well as poetry. She writes to shine a light on the people and other forms of life we tend to forget in the exhausting pursuit of empty, materialistic goals.

Virginia loves being a part of the creative community in Ames. She loves the supportive, inclusive community that is the Ames Poetry Revival, a local group that puts on monthly poetry slams. She and her husband, Scott Kovach, celebrate local music by inviting musicians to perform on their radio show, "Road Trip Iowa," broadcast by KHOI Community Radio.

In all her work, she values creativity, empathy, and community. She draws strength and inspiration from faith and a sense of wonder.
