Mars Poetica
Wyn Cooper M.A. 1981
White Pine Press, 2018

“Wyn Cooper’s poems are cold compresses for the inflamed mind. They calm and refresh with their clarity and lucidity; their music soothes and enlivens; their intelligence and their sure craft sustain us and confirm our faith in art. They are a perfect antidote for the fevers of our historical moment.”

Book jacket for Memories of Green

Memories of Green 
Erin Ganaway M.F.A. 2008
Finishing Line Press, 2017

“Erin Ganaway’s poems are as emotionally deep as they are clear-cut and precise at the surface. The elegiac poems of Memories of Green offer their readers an almanac of loss, an atlas of grief, and yet, in their close attention to the natural world (both inner and outer), a calendar of celebration. They condense the complex collateral damage surrounding a suicide, the memories and regrets and moments of providentially heightened awareness, into a poetry of pure presence.”

—R.H.W. Dillard
