Maps & Destinations

Mary K. Stillwell

Maps & Destinations celebrates the large and small events of life through story, myth, and the contemplation of other works of art. Deep in the phenomenology of time and place, the poems are as evocative as they are telling. Theirs is a lyricism grounded in the story of maturation and growth and celebrate the power of the imagination and the wonder of art. Lyrical and sensual, they remind us of life’s brevity while reminding us to embrace the joy our world offers.

MARY K. STILLWELL has studied writing in New York with William Packard and on the Plains with Ted Kooser. Stillwell earned her doctorate in Plains literature from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, and served as coeditor of Nebraska Presence, an anthology of contemporary Nebraska poets. She has work published widely, with poems appearing in The Paris Review, The Massachusetts Review, Prairie Schooner, Midwest Quarterly, South Dakota Review, The New York Quarterly, and numerous anthologies. Her first full-length col­lection of poems was Moving to Malibu, published by Sandhills Press.
