Bird lovers everywhere will be drawn to Meg Kearney’s latest poetry collection, inspired by (but not always necessarily about) our feathered friends. All Morning the Crows, winner of the Washington Prize, arrived hot off the presses on June 1. Meg is also the author of The Ice Storm, a heroic crown of sonnets published as a chapbook in 2020 (now in its third printing!); Home By Now, winner of the 2010 PEN New England LL Winship Award and a finalist for the Paterson Poetry Prize and Foreword Magazine‘s Book of the Year, and An Unkindness of Ravens. Meg also writes for young people, including three novels in verse for teens and a picture book, Trouper, winner of the 2015 Kentucky Bluegrass Award. Meg’s poetry has been featured on Poetry Daily, Ted Kooser’s “American Life in Poetry” column, and Garrison Keillor’s “A Writer’s Almanac,” and has been published in myriad anthologies. A four-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize, Meg is founding director of the Solstice MFA in Creative Writing Program in Massachusetts.
