Frederick Lowe is a half-time resident of Maine, a full-time poet, and a semi-retired psychotherapist. Lowe has had a home in the far Downeast for nearly 45 years, and the region has inspired most of his work. Fred “came back” to Maine, his paternal family having come from Deer Isle, ME to Brooklyn, NY more than 100 years ago, recruited as New York Harbor Pilots. A great-great grandmother was a Penobscot Native American. Fred is a two-time Pushcart nominee and has published in a number of print and on-line journals in the US, Great Britain, and Ireland.
