Pam Clements lives in Albany, NY and teaches medieval literature at Siena College. Her poems and essays have appeared in journals such as Kalliope, The Pacific Review, The Baltimore Review, The Palo Alto Review, and Earth's Daughters. She is grateful for the support of the FIGS writing group, for the women of the Pyramid Lake Women Writers’ Retreat, and of course, for the sisters: Susan, Liz and Kay.
“Clements is an intuitive observer, risking openness, embracing her past, and immersing herself in the large and small aspects of nature’s seasons.”
-Joyce Kessel, author of Secret Lives and an editor of Earth’s Daughters.
“Each of these poems takes on that inevitability, making us think, at their end, that we knew what the poet has shown us, all along, even as they open our eyes”
-Nate Leslie, author Salvaged Maxims, Egress, and Small Cathedrals and five other books.
“In this collection, Clements startles and delights, from the cool geologic poems to the jolt of profound, personal musings”
-Mimi Moriarty, author of War Psalm, Sibling Reverie and Crows Calling.
