About the Featured Poets
First Place Winner of The Poetry Box Chapbook Prize, 2022
Rosalie Sanara Petrouske is also the author of What We Keep (Finishing Line Press, 2016), A Postcard from my Mother (Finishing Line Press, 2004), and The Geisha Box (March Street Press, 1996). Petrouske’s poems and essays have appeared in many literary journals: Passages North, Red Rock Review, Rhino, The MacGuffin, Southern Poetry Review, Third Wednesday, Sky Island Journal, Blueline, and Lunch Ticket, among others. Her poetry was also included in several anthologies, the most recent, 100 Years of Upper Peninsula Writing, 1917-2017 from MSU Press and Voice on the Water: Great Lakes Native America Now from Northern Michigan University Press.
Her poem “Eating Corn Soup Under the Strawberry Moon” was one of six finalists in the 2020 Jack Grapes Poetry Prize from Cultural Daily. In 2021, she was one of five finalists for the distinction of U.P. Poet Laureate (of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan). Images of the natural world are prominent throughout her work as she stays true to the teachings of her Ojibwe father, who taught her how to provide careful stewardship and to always honor her surrounding environment, whether a woodland or urban landscape.
