SPILLING SALT

(COMING WINTER 2017)

In her third collection of poetry, award-winning author B. L. Bruce again echoes the lyricism and imagery that readers have come to praise.

Deemed by many to be the heiress of Mary Oliver, Bruce’s newest book boasts the entirety of her work as a poet, featuring both brand new and previously acclaimed poems, giving readers a more in depth look at her work.


Three-time award winning author and Pushcart Prize nominee, California poet B. L. Bruce has been deemed the "heiress of Mary Oliver."

With a bachelor’s degree in literature and creative writing, with a concentration in poetry, from the University of California at Santa Cruz, her work has appeared in dozens of anthologies, magazines, and literary publications, including The Sun Magazine, Northwind Magazine, The Soundings Review, and The Monterey Poetry Review, among many others.

Most recently the recipient of the Pushpen Press Pendant Prize for Poetry, Bruce is the author of three books, The Weight of Snow, 28 Days of Solitude, and The Starling’s Song. Her much praised debut collection The Weight of Snow was the 2014 International Book Awards poetry category finalist and the 2014 USA Best Book Awards poetry category finalist.
