Once Removed is Nancy Pagh’s new collection of poems about the kinship between poets who are “related, but of different generations.” Each poem riffs on or talks back to another poet (Emily Dickinson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Theodore Roethke, and many others), yet is meaningful, pleasurable, and intense in its own right.

Nancy Pagh burst on to the literary scene as a teenager, publishing “Is a Clam Clammy, Or Is It Just Wet?” in a local boating magazine. Since then she has authored three collections of (more serious) poetry and has performed in national and international reading series such as the Gist Street Master’s series in Pittsburgh, the Skagit River Poetry Festival in LaConner, and the Cross-Border Pollination series in Vancouver, B.C. She has been the D. H. Lawrence Fellow at the Taos Summer Writers Conference, a recipient of an Artist Trust Fellowship, and was runner-up (of over 4,000 poems) for the Wergle Flomp humor poem contest. She teaches creative writing at WWU.
