Writer's Block: Reeves Keyworth

Posted By on Wed, Oct 6, 2010 at 9:37 AM

Local author Reeves Keyworth's My Daphne Phase has been published by Finishing Line Press ($12, 27 pages).

Summary (from publisher):

Keyworth, whose family moved to Tucson in 1947, spent her childhood and part of her young adulthood in the Southwest, and many of her poems reflect her response to that landscape - a falling-down house on Lee Street in the 'seventies, the "holy flatness" of the Tucson Valley, a "eucalyptus porous as the light." Other poems in this collection range in topic from an audition for a television commercial to a retelling of the Three Bears tale in which Goldilocks is replaced by Scrapefoot the fox.


Author Bio:

Reeves Keyworth grew up in Tucson, Arizona and took degrees from Bennington College and the Iowa Writer's Workshop. She has worked in public television, publishing, and in the Washington D.C. library system. As C.L. Keyworth, she has published children's books and written a documentary film, Master Smart Woman. In 1988, North Country Press published a book based on the film.

In 2001, four of her poems won Honorable Mention in the Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry, were published in Nimrod and nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Other publications include Chelsea, The National Poetry Review, and Tiferet: A Journal of Spiritual Literature. She was awarded a Fellowship in Fiction by the New York Foundation for the Arts. She currently lives in Tucson with her husband.
