Sheila Cowing's poems are published in over one hundred literary journals and are frequently anthologized. Stronger in the Broken Places is her long awaited first book-length collection. From 1986­1991 Cowing served as editor of Shoe Tree, a national literary magazine for young writers. The New Jersey Arts Council awarded her a Distiguished Artist Fellowship in 1988.

 

Perceptive, shimmering with clarity, Sheila Cowingıs poems explore facets of the human predicament: sorrow, history, music remembered, and the insistence of nature. Her metaphors rise out of the natural world she reflects upon so generously, giving this collection a fresh and intelligent vision. ‹Colette Inez, author of Clemency

The rich, clear images delight the senses and beckon the spirit. . . Cowing's long-standing love of words is evident. The Bloomsbury Review

Sheila Cowing's poems come forth richly, but with the excitement of a wild struggle to wrench them out of their elements. It isnıt smooth work. Muscular consonances, surprising internal rhyme patterns, harsh juxtapositions, difficult leaps: one senses the mindıs wrestle, with language, with dislocation, and with loss. Excellent at compression, she forms poems that ignite like the pressed fuel of a peat bog, like the burning distances of her New Mexican vistas. This book is hot. ‹Madeline Tiger, author of Water Has No Color
