Sandra Meek has published six books of poems, most recently Still (Persea Books, 2020), named a “New & Noteworthy Poetry Book” by The New York Times Book Review. Of Still, The New York Times writes: “Meek’s prescient poetry has long dwelled darkly on humanity’s environmental impact; in this book, her sixth, the tone has grown urgent, even apocalyptic.” Other titles include An Ecology of Elsewhere (Persea), Road Scatter (Persea), and Biogeography (Tupelo), winner of the Dorset Prize. A recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Poetry and the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, she has three times been awarded Georgia Author of the Year in Poetry and twice the Peace Corps Writers Award in Poetry. Dana Professor of English, Rhetoric, and Writing at Berry College, she is also Poetry Editor of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum.
