Dr. Nick Samaras, English adjunct, was recognized for his poetry on "Faith, Fiction, Friends," a blog which explores faith and literature.
"A Plum Night In Jerusalem, Three A.M.," was specifically examined from his book entitled Hands of the Saddlemaker. The reviewer states, "This poem does what good poems do. It encourages you to read the same words but find something new each time, leaving something ambiguous enough where you have to go back and reread it. And then you find something unexpected."
His forthcoming book, American Psalm, World Psalm, will be published by Ashland Poetry Press, March 2014.
