Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Perhaps the best description of my work is by Robert Bixby, publisher of March Street Press, who published one of my collections, Other Dancers: "I was impressed first of all by the humanity of Justin Spring's work, his common touch and his involvement with the world of his poetry. His work not only tells the remarkable stories of unremarkable people, but it also tells the story of a poetic consciousness brought into ordinary circumstances. His stories take place in bars and country churches populated by the people of the neighborhood, full-fleshed and passionate... He writes poems that lure you in and surround you with people you suddenly realize you have known all your life, but whom you have never seen in this light before."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Justin Spring

I am a prizewinning poet, novelist, and video artist who works in many mediums: print, audio (CD), video (DVD ; internet). Among the poetry prizes and honors I have received for my written poetry are: The 1997 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, Finalist 1994 and 1997 Academy of American Poets Walt Whitman National Prize Contest. Among the prizes I have received for my Video Poetry (Dreamstories) are the 2005 John Ringling Individual Artist Fellowship and 2006 State of Florida Individual Artist fellowship. I recently received the 2010 Ringling Towers Literary Award for my novel ALICE HICKEY. The Ringling School of Art has also honored me in 2009 (along with 11 other Sarasota artists) with an Ageless Creativity Award, for my life long creativity in poetry. I am the author of seven collections of written poetry and seven CD collections of oral poetry. I have created over 100 DREAMSTORY videos, performance-poetry videos, art videos and video documentaries about poetry. Finally, I was educated at Columbia College and am the founder of SOULSPEAK (www.soulspeak.org)
