Reviews / Endorsements

“Skoyles projects a sharp sense of place (Queens, NY) and time (now), in an original voice.”—The Associated Press

“In short lyrics that waste not a word, Skoyles reflects on death, guilt, religion, and other central topics, with metaphors as unusual as they are utterly right.”—Booklist

“. . . Poems written with a receptive ear for music, a visceral sense of rhythm, and a penetrating vision through the ordinary . . .”—American Book Review

JOHN SKOYLES’ first book of poems, A Little Faith, was published in 1981. He has received grants from the New York State Foundation for the Arts, the North Carolina Arts Council, and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. He currently directs the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, and lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
