Poetry: Sue Burton
Sue D. Burton reads from her unflinching new collection, BOX.  Winner of the 2017 Two Sylvias Press Poetry Prize, Box is “a book we need: brave, bold, inventive, magical” (Carol Potter).   2017 Two Sylvias Press Poetry Prize judge Diane Seuss remarked, “Let’s just get this part out of the way, Sue Burton’s Box is a brilliant, imperative, masterful collection….a book of mirth and snark….[her] source material is the dovetailing of the holy quartet: public history, political history, family history, and apparently personal history. But this is poetry, not polemic. Its bottom line is the possibility of language within and beyond the borders of its ideas.”  Two Sylvias Press is an independent press located in the Seattle area, publishing poetry, memoir, essays, books on the craft of writing, and creativity tools. Sue D. Burton  is a physician assistant specializing in women’s health care. Her poetry has appeared in Beloit Poetry Journal, Blackbird, Green Mountains Review,Mudlark, New Ohio Review, Shenandoah, and on Verse Daily. She has been awarded Fourth Genre’s 2017 Steinberg Essay Prize, a Vermont Arts Council grant, and nominations for the Pushcart Prize and the Best of the Net. Her chapbook Little Steel is forthcoming (Fomite Press). She holds degrees in writing from Johns Hopkins University and the Vermont College MFA and was apprenticeship-trained as a physician assistant at the Vermont Women’s Health Center.
