Laura Stott holds an M.F.A. from the Inland Northwest Center for Writers (Eastern Washington University) and teaches at Weber State University. Her poems have been published in various journals, including Bellingham Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Cutbank, Quarterly West, Sonora Review, Redactions, Sugar House Review, and Rock and Sling.
“These are poems of travel and travail, of losing one’s bearings but finding one’s way. In short, they transform us—into crows and lizards, into sacred cows in a blue city, into snakes or sea otters or sometimes stars. These poems invite and entice. Do not lose your eyes, says one poem. Child, hold God in those hands, says another. May we all grow so gently bold. May we all hold and keep holding.”
