BEMIDJI – It took a Slam poet to capture the Bemidji Poetry Slam last week at the Headwaters School of Music and the Arts.

Julia Oxenreider arrived in Bemidji almost two years ago to help her sister care for a new baby. She planned to stay  for a little while and has not left.

An alumna of Moorhead State with a major in women’s studies and a minor in creative writing, Oxenreider can point back in her family to other women who wrote and were published.
