Poet Sara Henning is the author of VIEW FROM TRUE NORTH (Southern Illinois University Press), winner of the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition Award. In these edgy poems of witness, Sara Henning’s speaker serves as both conduit and curator of the destructive legacies of alcoholism and multigenerational closeting. Considering the impact of addiction and sexual repression in the family and on its individual members, Henning explores with deft compassion the psychological ramifications of traumas across multiple generations.

Henning is also the author of A SWEETER WATER, and her poetry has appeared in Quarterly West, Witness, Passages North, Rhino, Meridian, and Cincinnati Review. In 2015, she won the Crazyhorse Lynda Hull Memorial Poetry Prize. She is a visiting assistant professor of English and creative writing at Stephen F. Austin State University. She also serves as poetry editor of Stephen F. Austin State University Press.
