The Author

B. E. Stock is a prolific poet who writes in both traditional forms and free verse. Her work has been described by other poets as “life affirming and well crafted”, “burning a hole in my consciousness,” and “like a drink of clear water.” She studied writing at the Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Sarah Lawrence College, the West Chester Conference, and Colrain, and has hosted numerous readings in New York City. Widely published in literary periodicals, B. E. Stock published two chapbooks, Soliloquies (1992) and In Praise of Leisure (1996). Her long narrative poem, Sally Jordan, was published by Mellen Poetry Press in 1996 in Three Women: Touching the Boundaries of Life. In 2001, she published her Collected Poems. The present volume is selected from poems written between 2001 and 2017.
