“Burnt Offering is compelling reading, it sweeps one away like a riptide does.“
Moira Richards, poet and reviewer

“I loved Joan’s collection which I found at once immediately readable, dazzling, fragile, and formidable. Beautiful journeys into the need to love, to speak, to understand and simultaneously to travel beyond the boundaries that constrain language.”
Stacy Hardy, poet and journalist
