Award-winning poet. Jean Janzen demonstrates powerfully why she received The Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Janzen's poems send us to explore the mystery of our connections to this earth, our dust and its dust. These poems show us with certainty what we sense persistently-- that we are unequivocally physical and yet undeniably spiritual, so ephemeral and yet so bound. Jean Janzen, a well-known poet from Fresno, California, conducts readings of her poetry around North America and teaches several university classes. "Jean Janzen's poems are lucid, clean, beautifully detailed--but she also knows well how fierce the hungers of body and soul are." --Jeff Gundy, poet
