With visual imagery that matches the vivid subject matter of her island home, Nancy Anne Miller writes about a colonial childhood within the echoes of empire, the shadow of slavery and the complexity of island life which tourism has glossed over. She recounts the effect of the ocean on identity, and the vulnerability of an island almost seven hundred miles at sea. Now residing in the United States, she compares the two cultures through an immigrant’s experience and writes back to her home with the pathos of loss and with the buoyancy of gratitude.

Nancy Anne Miller is a Bermudian poet. Her poems are published in many international journals including: Edinburgh Review, New Welsh Review, International Literary Quarterly, The Dalhousie Review, The Fiddlehead, The Caribbean Writer, Bim, tongues of the ocean. She has an MLitt in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow, and is a MacDowell Colony Fellow


"Nancy Anne Miller’s poetry travels far but homes to landscapes which, seemingly familiar, enchant and surprise. Nothing quite settles, the poems haunted by things turning into plants and creatures, plants and creatures into things, words folding and unfolding their meanings. The best poems are on tenterhooks, and we with them." - Michael Schmidt, PN Review
