Altmann, Cathy

“Together these poems represent what matters most to me. I have found that I write best when I let whatever words might come, come. This is a new kind of writing for me, but the unexpected images and metaphors still, I hope, speak some kind of truth. They are about things we know without naming. And every part of the process, which is hard to describe, was a form of prayer, a form of things arriving.”     CATHY ALTMANN

Endorsement for Cathy Altmann’s previous award-winning collection of poetry, Circumnavigation:  “These poems continually surprise the reader with their freshness. The style is crisp and spare, the imagery simple but powerful.”  ANNE ELVEY and  GARTH MADSEN
