"I have tremendous respect for any poet who strives to be even half as great as Sarah Dowling."—CAConrad

Sarah Dowling is the author of Security Posture and Birds & Bees. Sarah's poetry was included in the anthology I'll Drown My Book: Conceptual Writing by Women. She teaches at the University of Washington Bothell and is international editor at Jacket2.
