Tina Gross is a poet, librarian, and activist originally from Battle Lake, MN. During her Hinge Arts Residency, she plans to focus on found poems related to the Fergus Falls Regional Treatment Center site, where her grandmother worked in 1970s and ‘80s. Found poetry and constrained writing are a significant focus of Tina’s work, and she experiments with techniques that incorporate search results and other features of the research tools that she helps to create and maintain in her job as a cataloging/metadata librarian. Her poems have appeared in journals including Rogue Agent, The Laurel Review, Third Point Press, and Poetry City, USA. She currently lives and works in Saint Cloud, MN, and is an MFA candidate in creative writing at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
