Rebecca Starks’ Fetch Muse reviewed by Seven Days

Rebecca Starks is a consulting and founding editor of Burlington-based literary magazine Mud Season Review. She is also the “Founding Mama of BWW.” Her debut Time Is Always Now was a finalist for the 2019 Able Muse Press Award.

Her second collection, Fetch Muse, also published by Able Muse Press is more of a narrative: the poems tell the story of the first dog they adopted, in Portland, OR, while exploring resonances with other loves, losses, and bewilderments. 

Fetch, Muse is cause for dog lovers to rejoice and a reminder that poetry needn’t be the exclusive domain of “highbrow” subjects and academic references. Sometimes we just have to let poetry leap up and lick our faces.”
