Laura Apol is a faculty member at Michigan State University. She is the author of several award-winning collections of poetry, including Falling into Grace; Crossing the Ladder of Sun; Requiem, Rwanda; and, most recently, Nothing but the Blood. She is currently completing a collection with the working title, Lullaby.
Nothing but the Blood is a collection of poems that explore the evolution of the personal, the familial, the religious, and the spiritual. Coming as they do at mid-life, the poems understand, appreciate, and often push back against both history and expectation.
The Planet Earth Poetry reading series is a launching pad for the energies of writers and poets established and not. Between 6:45 and 7:00, put your name in the hat to read at open mic. Planet Earth Poetry acknowledges with respect that we read and write on the traditional territories of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
