Julie Hensley grew up on a sheep farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and then traveled west, earning a MFA at Arizona State University. Now she makes her home in Kentucky with her husband (the writer R. Dean Johnson) and their two children. She is a core faculty member of the Bluegrass Writers Studio, the low-residency MFA program at Eastern Kentucky University.  Hensley’s poems and stories have appeared in dozens of journals, most recently The Journal, The Southern Review, New Madrid, Saranac Review, and Blackbird. A chapbook of her poems, The Language of Horses, is available from Finishing Line Press, and her poetry collection, Viable, is available from Five Oaks Press. Hensley’s first book-length fiction, Landfall: A Ring of Stories, won the 2015 Ohio State University Non/fiction Prize and was published in 2016.
