About the Author
Editor Sheryl Clough is a poet, writer, dog lover, photographer and traveler living on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington State. She founded Write Wing Publishing in 2009 after retiring from the faster pace of downtown Seattle. Recent honors include the William Stafford Award from Washington Poets Association, a nonfiction prize from Janes Stories Press Foundation, and the San Gabriel Valley Literary Festival's 2013 Chapbook Prize for her book "Ring of Fire, Sea of Stone." Sheryl enjoys duplicate bridge, sea kayaking, and collecting antiques. As a member of the Antique Purse Collectors Society, she is traveling to Amsterdam in May 2014 for the Society's first international gathering, and hopes that new poems will arise from that experience. Sheryl blogs occasionally at http://Scatchetpoet.blogspot.com.

Lavish details carry the reader on the poets’ journeys. Taste comes alive in Diane Stone’s “Last Night’s Chicken Curry”; texture slips over us in Lois Parker Edstrom’s visit to “Yellowstone Park, 1948”; character comes alive in Gail Denham’s “Cornelius and The Big Blow,” seasoned with folk tale; sound lives in John Baalke’s “Dutchman’s Trail, Superstition Wilderness”; sight and myth merge (“light falling in a curtain through the chink of sky”) in Bill Carpenter’s “Antelope Canyon, Arizona.”
These many voices come together to celebrate discoveries of our world. A rewarding read and an opportunity to visit with some of our best poets.
