Rebecca Starks

Time is Always Now
Event date: 
Thursday, August 15, 2019 - 7:00pm

Join Rebecca Starks to celebrate the launch of her new collection of poetry, Time is Always Now.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Rebecca Starks's Time Is Always Now unfolds against a backdrop of nature, often permeated in unexpected ways with the human dynamics of family, neighborhood, and nation. Her poems convey the urgency within moments of transformation--whether seasonal, as in wilderness and garden; physical, as in the trajectory of youth, aging, and death; or political, as in the challenges of misgovernance and the environmental exigencies of our time. This finalist in the Able Muse Book Award is a finely wrought, thought-provoking collection.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Rebecca Starks grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and has since lived in New England, the Bay Area, the Pacific Northwest, and for the past eight years in Vermont. Her poetry collection Time Is Always Now is forthcoming from Able Muse Press; her poems and short fiction have appeared in Baltimore Review, Ocean State Review, Slice Literary, Carolina Quarterly, Raintown Review, Crab Orchard Review, Tahoma Literary Review, and elsewhere. Winner of Rattle‘s 2018 Neil Postman Award for Metaphor, and past winner of Poetry Northwest‘s Richard Hugo Prize, she is a co-founder of Mud Season Review and a former director of the Burlington Writers Workshop. She works as a freelance editor and teaches literature courses for the Osher Institute of Lifelong Learning program at the University of Vermont. She and her family live in a log cabin in the woods of Richmond, Vermont.
