Sarah Browning pierces the veil of artifice. She lives, breathes and stands for justice; using poetry to create the larger conversation. Her poems may be of real world effects, or matters central to her spirit, yet we can count on each poem to be a line of inquiry that searches for truth in action. Part of a spirited community that is working for social justice, she remains highly individual, like any true artist.

Grace Cavalieri, Poet Laureate of Maryland
