Patricia Clark

Writer, Professor, Poet in Residence at Grand Valley State University

North of Wondering

"These poems have arrived at the page over a great distance and distillation of experience and after the patience and clarifications of time. They are the work of wonder, acceptance, and maturity of means -- nothing wasted, nothing worth saying denied. The greatest pleasure in Patricia Clark's first collection is just how good and necessary the writing and how achieved the heart of the matter is." Stanley Plumly

Winner of a first book competition, 1999 (Women in Literature, Inc.)
