About the Author

Kelly Rowe was born in North Carolina, and lived for many years in the American South. She received her MFA degree in English from the University of Iowa, and her JD from Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia. She now lives, writes and occasionally practices law in Flagstaff, Arizona. Her poems have appeared in journals including the Iowa Review, the Virginia Quarterly Review, the North American Review, and most recently, the Southern Poetry Review and the Pittsburgh Poetry Review.


"Keenly seen, wondrously precise, achingly humane, Kelly Rowe's poems soar, whether she is celebrating a lost father, singing of a southern childhood of gravity and grace, probing the intimate risks of love, or evoking the pained choices of those alive at society's margins. Every poem in Flying South on the Back of a Dove is held aloft by the poet's generous and sustaining eye, ear, and heart, as she offers us 'provisions of grief, ' asks us to find hope in the 'red flash rising, a burst/in the black expanse, ' and encourages us 'to embrace the earth.'"--David Groff, author of Clay

"These graceful, accomplished poems lay claim to a specific terrain--to dailyness as it inhabits the present and the past, whether a wagon train in history or a bedside table with today's items on it. The language here is often daring, the syntax ambitious in its reach and the tone exact and exacting. These are poems to read and remember."--Eavan Boland
