robin turner


Robin celebrates poetry's power to slow us, to show us, to help us better see ourselves, one another, and the battered and beautiful world around us. Author of bindweed & crow poison (Porkbelly Press), her work is featured in literary journals, anthologies, and public poetry projects, and has been nominated for Best of the Net and the Pushcart Prize. She is a teaching artist in Dallas, Texas, and an online writing guide for teens.
