from L O R E
Instress Press, 1998
The press Instress was edited by Leonard Brink, who also edited a journal called Inscape. I very much admired the writers he published including Keith Waldrop and Elizabeth Robinson. Leonard was the first editor who encouraged me to include my collage work on the cover of the book L O R E, which was published in 1988. He also published another chapbook of mine titled Clepsydra in 1999. Leonard was a terrific and careful reader of my work and I’m grateful for the time and care he dedicated to publishing poetry.
