The poems in Maureen Kane's collection are an exploration of the human condition through the lens of a mental health therapist. They are about reclaiming and celebrating oneself and one's story in a time of turmoil.
In her poetry Maureen explores the quest to meet our humanity and uncover resilience. Along the way we grapple with accepting the paradoxes of the human condition and meet allies that accompany us on the journey.
Maureen Kane lives in Bellingham, WA with her husband. She is a mental health therapist in private practice. Her past work focused on literacy, health care access, aging, homeless youth, and disability. She is a winner of the 2022 Sue C.
