Poet Explores Life in Balance & Tension with U.S. Military

Inspired by great works of visual art, writing, and sculpture, as well as small insights alongside her child and dog, a seasoned poet and spouse of a U.S. Marine explores through poetry the invisible forces and frictions at work in our lives.

“In her word-experiments with the unseen forces at work in our lives—the pushes-and-pulls of parenting, the moments of quiet natures observed, the energies stored and released by objects of art both great and small—Lisa Stice captures an essential and modern magic,” says Middle West Press editor-publisher Randy Brown.

“If you’ve ever been a military kid, parent, or spouse—regardless of age or era—you’ll find a welcome home in her words,” says Brown.

Lisa Stice is the author of the previously published poetry collections Uniform (Aldrich Press, 2016), Permanent Change of Station (Middle West Press, 2018), and the poetry chapbook Desert (Prolific Press, 2018). Her work appears in print and on-line journals worldwide. She is a poetry editor for Inklette Magazine and volunteers with various other writing organizations. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, daughter, and beloved Norwich Terrier named Seamus.
