Maggie Creshkoff

Maggie Creshkoff lives on a farm in Cecil County, Maryland, with far too many cats. Though primarily a potter specializing in local clays, as the proud founder of the group Trashy Women she also incorporates recycled materials into her work, more of which can be seen at

Her writing has been published in Ceramics Monthly, Pottery Making Illustrated, Studio Potter, Cecil Soil Magazine, Mason Dixon Arrive and the Cecil Whig. Her artists’ books are in the collections of the New York Public Library and the Newark Art Museum. Maggie has won awards for her poetry, and her poem “Why Losing a Job seems so Unimportant Now” is included in Alternatives to Surrender, a collection of works about cancer.

Maggie currently serves as Literary Arts Co-Chair of the Cecil County Arts Council, and is hard at work putting together the 6th chapbook for this group as it enters its 13th year of poetical existence.
