Transatlantic is excited to welcome Rhonda DeChambeau!

Poet and writer Rhonda DeChambeau was recently named the 2022-2023 Writer-in-Residence by the Associates of the Boston Public Library for her work-in-progress, a YA novel in verse about a dancer struggling with body image. 

Rhonda graduated with a degree in Literature from Harvard University and earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from Vermont College of Fine Arts. A lifelong resident of Massachusettes, she was introduced to the world of words at a young age when visiting her local library with her mother. Her love of poetry began when she discovered a small volume of poems tucked away in an old bookcase. Rhonda’s projects include picture books, middle-grade and young-adult novels, and poetry for young readers.

Rhonda lives with her husband and two children in South Boston. You can follow her on social media here:
