Karen Skolfield’s poem in Issue 8 is a true beauty that incites rereadings and thinking long after you finish it. Congrats to her and good luck on the new book!
Congrats to Skolfield on the award and book! Like Monica said, I really love “Lost Mountain”. The first line is thought-provoking and immediately draws you in. The poem has a big impact and leaves you thinking.
I am so glad for her and for the post on this, just because it allowed me to find and read “Lost Mountain” . What a mind stirring poem. Using such simple language and provoking stark images. Will be looking forward to her book.
Congratulations to Karen Skolfield for her award! I look forward to “Frost in the Low Areas”. In regards to “Lost Mountain” I love how Karen Skolfield engages the reader by breaking her lines to lead into the next. I also love the somewhat comical narration and I hope her novel has a similar tone.
My favorite stanza of “Lost Mountain” was the last one. Excuse the cliché, but the three concluding lines struck a chord. It was simplistic but beautiful. Congratulations to Karen!
We’re very happy for her as well. There are so many things to love about “Lost Mountain.” Congratulations again, Karen!
Congratulations, always nice to see quality writers continue to get published.
Always wonderful to see previous SR contributors going on to do great things, congratulations Karen!
Love to hear that people are working forward constantly! It’s great inspiration to the bottom feeders like me!! Congrats!
I, too, enjoyed reading “Lost Mountain.” I love the imagery and the subtle humor (especially the part about losing expensive sunglasses, ha). Very well done!
Congratulations! Based on my reading of “Lost Mountain” I can say that Karen’s writing deserves to be rewarded. I’m looking forward to reading “Frost in the Low Areas”.
