Split Rock Review is now selling copies of Crystal S. Gibbins' full-length poetry collection NOW/HERE (Holy Cow! Press).
People and events can’t be divided by a line on the ground or drawn on a map. Many of Gibbins’ poems in NOW/HERE blend history, naturalist observations, and experiences about living on both sides of the 49th parallel—the international border that separates Canada and U.S.
Other poems in the collection focus on the diversity, struggle, and power of nature, examining the tensions and oppositions that exist within climate, time, and change. Like the lake waters of the northern wilderness, the power of these poems lies beneath the surface.
An original new voice, Crystal Spring Gibbins' poetry collection surprises with innovation while celebrating the natural landscape.
