An Endless Skyway Goes to Press!
An Endless Skyway: Poetry from the State Poets Laureate is at the press and on its way, just in time for the March 13-14 Poet Laureati event. We are greatly indebted to our stupendous publisher, Steve Semken, of Ice Cube Books, for creating such a beautiful book. We are also very moved to have Jerry Sipe’s beautiful cover photo,”Mount Baker, Moon, Jupiter, and Mercury at Sunrise, Autumnal Equinox, 2003.” Mount Baker, located in Cascade range of Washington State, is seen here from Bazan Bay in Vancouver Island, BC.
Maxine Kumin, Pulitzer-prize winner for her collection, Up Country, writes, “This vigorous anthology deserves a place in every library.” Ted Kooser, former U.S. poet laureate, write, “Each poet adds a unique style to the anthology and a unique slant on what it means to write from ‘this land made for you and me.’ This book is made for every American to roam and ramble within. Open these pages and enjoy the journey.”
An Endless Skyway also shows readers the vital work of our nation’s poets laureate in maintaining and growing the light of literature. Kevin Prufer, editor-at-large of Pleiades and a professor of Creative Writing at the University of Texas, writes, “Our state poets laureate programs are central to the health of our literature, bringing a bounty of talented writers to good readers across the nation….This anthology brings together an astonishing array of poets, each of them listening closely to the music of our language and writing with clarity, passion and intelligence.”
