The poetry of Carol Coffee Reposa reflects the wide diversity of her life experience as a wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, traveler, musician, gardener, swimmer, and lifelong lover of the arts.  Although born in southern California, she comes from an unabashedly Texan family, and her work draws heavily on the history, climate, and culture of the Lone Star State.

Author of four books of poetry and a four-time Pushcart Prize nominee,  Reposa was a finalist in The Malahat Review’s Long Poem Contest (1988), winner of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center Poetry Contest (1992), and winner of the San Antonio Public Library’s Arts & Letters Award (2015).  She also has received three Fulbright-Hays Fellowships for study in Russia, Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico.  The 2008 Texas Poet Laureate Larry D. Thomas describes her as “a national poet of seriousness and distinction.”
