STEPHEN ROWE’s poetry has appeared in such publications as CV2, Arc Poetry Magazine, The Antigonish Review, Riddle Fence, and many others. His first book, Never More There (2009), was shortlisted for the Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage and History Award. His second collection, geo•logics, was published by Breakwater Books in 2015. From Heart’s Content, he now lives in Gander.


“Rowe’s patience with the found earth is infectious…We need his benevolent, human-tuned ear and his understanding of the social ecology of home.”

Jacob McArthur Mooney

 

geo*logics successfully mixes classic aspects of poetry with a deft use of language and form to create something wholly Rowe’s own.”
