The Art of Silence

You don’t see many ekphrastic poems inspired by the work of a performance artist, but our Poem of the Week by California poet, Laura Schulkind, is just that.

” I write poetry and fiction because, lawyer that I am, I believe in the power of a well-told story. In law I am entrusted with others’ stories. Through poetry and fiction I tell my own. “

Laura’s chapbook, Lost in Tall Grass (Finishing Line Press), was released 2014 and her newest, The Long Arc of Grief (Finishing Line Press) came out this summer.
