Creative writing director publishes book of poetry ยป

Susan Davis
Susan Davis, director of UCI's Emphasis in Creative Writing, recently published her first book of poetry, I Was Building Up to Something. Her work reflects her birth in Louisiana, childhood in upstate New York and stints in Texas and Alaska. In 2010, Davis' poem "The Season Begins in a Waiting Room" won the Rebecca Lard Award, and her poem "Farm Days" was installed on windscreens at the Lake June transit station in Dallas. Robert Pinsky, former U.S. poet laureate, said, "Susan Davis' book has the indelible yet understated quality of certain great photographs." It's available at www.moontidepress.com.
