In this debut collection, Donna Sørensen writes poetry for a new generation.
She writes about belonging and the feel of different places, as well she might an Englishwoman who now lives in Denmark and who worked for three years in Ireland.
Her imagery is rooted deeply in natural experiences and alive with colour and imagination. She writes convincingly of life, of love and the challenges of growing into adulthood and change.
Donna Sørensen was chosen as The Stinging Fly’s Featured Poet for the Spring 2012 issue.
