Geri Doran


Geri Doran is the author of three poetry collections—Resin, Sanderlings and the forthcoming Epistle, Osprey (Tupelo, 2019). Her work has been recognized with an Amy Lowell Poetry Travelling Scholarship, a Wallace Stegner Fellowship, and the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets. She has also held residency fellowships at the James Merrill House, Maison Dora Maar in Provence, Lighthouse Works, Millay Colony and Vermont Studio Center. Individual poems have appeared recently in New England Review, Yale Review, Southwest Review and other journals. Her new book marks a shift toward a quieter poem in a more natural form. Contemplative and disquieted, the poems of Epistle, Osprey trace the mysteries of encounter, wanderlust, rootedness, the human relationship with nature, and our uncertain place in world and cosmos.
