Writer, Poet, Editor
As a writer, I feel called to witness and give voice to the insights
and inspiration that arrive when I am present and attentive
to other beings, the land, the wind, the water---all that is wild.
My writing honors the stories and wisdom of nature and its inhabitants
and the nourishment and fortitude I receive in their company.
"To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work." -- Mary Oliver
All That Sustains now available!
Roxanne Bogart's first book of poetry, a beautifully illustrated full-length collection, is now available through Off The Common Books. Illustrations by Nancy Haver. September 8, 2022
"All That Sustains is a gift of profound gratitude from the poet to the wonders and abundance of nature---yes, even as it is 'red in tooth and claw,' Gather this book in your arms and follow it through the seasons to the inner and outer worlds of a keen naturalist-poet who speaks of her place among creatures, land, water, what lives, what dies, and what matters. And in the way of a fine field guide, you will be led to identify and praise more clearly your own."
--- Patricia Lee Lewis, award-winning poet, founder of the Straw Dog Writers Guild, and author of A Kind of Yellow and High Lonesome.
