Rebecca Baggett


Rebecca Baggett acquired a grandson and a book contract in the first months of the pandemic, both of which helped her stay more or less sane. Her first full-length poetry collection, The Woman Who Lives without Money, was published in 2022. She lives in Athens, Georgia. You can follow her on Instagram: @rbaggett27.
