Faculty Research and Creative Work: Watershed Poetry

Watershed Poetry

Laura Donnelly (left) of the English and creative writing faculty recently released “Watershed,” an award-winning poetry collection whose genesis is a story of observation, practice and perseverance.

“Watershed” earned the 2013 Cider Press Review Editors Prize and was published by the company. In this collection, Donnelly finds inspiration in the often-overlooked work and experiences within women’s lives—ranging from her mother studying Darwin’s finches to ongoing challenges facing women artists.
