Barbara West’s voice is clear, well-spoken and incisive. There is a clarity in her consciousness that allows a lovely poetry to come though. There isn’t a trace of the unnecessary here. The feelings are deep, raw and accessible to all readers. Her vulnerability, honesty, tenderness, and contemplation into the ordinary is extraordinary.

Barbara West is the only parent of a 20-year- old and works as a Wound/Ostomy/Continence Nurse, with prior work in Hospice and Home Health. Previous publications include Full of Crow, Brevities, Medusa’s Kitchen, Sacramento Voices 2016, Swarthmore College Bulletin, and the Davis Shambhala Center Newsletter. Thanks to a history in theater and time singing rock and roll, Barbara enjoys reciting from memory. This allows her to use her whole body to present a poem, usually without a mic, since her voice is plenty loud.
