About Me

My name is Jonie McIntire and I’m a poet. Becoming a part of the Toledo, Ohio literary community has given me room to grow my passion for literary arts. Giving back to that community is just as important to me as pushing my own craft forward.


My most recent chapbook, Semidomesticated (working title) will be coming out from NightBallet Press in 2020. My first two chapbooks were Beyond the Sidewalk (NightBallet Press, 2017) and Not All Who Are Lost Wander (Finishing Line Press, 2016). I host two monthly poetry reading series, Uncloistered Poetry and Art & Performance Poetry, and have been the poetry editor for Springboard, a teen literary journal, for the past three years. A recipient of an Arts Commission Accelerator Grant, I have poems published in journals across the country and even stamped into cement in Toledo, Ohio as part of the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo’s Sidewalk Poetry series.
