Laura Winters most recent poetry collection is Coming Here to be Alone (Mountains and Rivers Press 2008, English and German). The western landscape with all its hoodoos, headlands, basin and range, whitewater and rain are the foundation from which she works. Winter’s love for improvised music also informs how she approaches using the English language. Improvised music and its spaces create an interesting tension between sound, words and silence of landscape she uses in her poetry.
