About the Author

Over 300 of Sandra Kolankiewicz's poems and stories have appeared in reviews and anthologies, most recently in New World Writing, BlazeVox, Gargoyle, Prairie Schooner, Fifth Wednesday, ArGiLo, Prick of the Spindle, Per Contra, and Pif. Turning Inside Out won the 2008 fall Black River contest at Black Lawrence Press. In 2014, Finishing Line Press published The Way You Will Go. When I Fell, a novel with 76 color illustrations by Kathy Skerritt, is available from Web-e-Books.

She considers her subject matter to be domestic life, which is not for the faint of heart. Living a life established around the hearth, one encounters all of the joys and tragedies associated with the human experience: birth and death, success and failure, monetary struggles, the balance between work and family, and the tension between the ideal and the real. For her, poetry allows escape, redemption, compassion, and the opportunity to experience the primacy of creative energy.
