What inspired you to write Gathering Place? What notions appear in Gathering Place are those which have shown up in most of my writing. The fact that the book, a first, is published quite late in my writing life has for me made it a kind of selected poems, even though it's the length of a standard...

How did your book Mass for Shut-Ins come about? Several years ago, Greg Kosmicki, founder and editor of Backwaters Press, said he’d like to publish my next book. I held him at bay for a time, knowing I didn’t have enough poems of note to hold a collection together, but the last four years have be...

How did your book [email protected] come about? I’d had [email protected] in mind for the title early on and couldn’t shake it. It went through a dozen permutations while I wrote and collected the poems but ended up back where it started. I liked the idea that it could serve as an address for me...

BOOK REVIEW: Mass for Shut-Ins by Todd Robinson

BOOK REVIEW: Mass for Shut-Ins by Todd Robinson

March 5, 2019


Filed under Book Reviews, News

How did your book Points of Entry come about? After seeing the movie, Bright Star, about the life of John Keats, I became obsessed with the line "Touch has a memory." And it wasn’t the first time I’d been struck by this idea, as I’ve never forgotten the book by Bill Holm, Boxelder Bug Variati...

The vocabulary is simple and direct, the subject matter widely varied, the voice wholly Plettner’s. The poems make clear her love of nature and of her fellow human beings, sometim...
