Nancy Krygowski is the author of Velocity, winner of the 2006 Agnes Lynch Starrett prize from the University of Pittsburgh Press. She is an ESOL instructor at a non-profit and also teaches in Carlow University’s Madwomen in the Attic writing workshops. The Women in the Corner (February 2020) “ keenly observes and gives voice to the ambiguities and astonishments that we often turn away from—in human relationships and in our own unruly hearts. In poems that speak fearlessly about sex and grief, mothers and daughters, and friendships and marriage, Krygowski examines the beauty and danger of inhabiting a woman’s body in the twenty-first century while negotiating how our pasts infiltrate, for better or worse, the here and now. This intimate collection delivers hard won loves and insights, surprising humor, and daring imagination. Krygowski celebrates our joys, gives witness to our pain, and never, never compromises.”
