Trained in Western philosophy and determined to say the impossible by 
escaping academic language, Kjirsten Severson was not prepared for her 
own writing that began to appear when she moved to Portland from 
Pittsburgh at the end of 2003. Any readily recognized narrative became 
invisible. . . .


Karen Wood Hepner writes in the mood of a house haunted -- she creates 
landscapes inside rooms, hallways, cupboards, and under beds. Karen is 
fascinated by the movement between inner and outer landscapes, and 
writes poems that navigate these planes freely. . . .
