About the Author

Erin Coughlin Hollowell is a poet and writer who lives at the end of the road in Alaska. Prior to landing in Alaska, she lived on both coasts, in big cities and small towns, pursuing many different professions from tapestry weaving to arts administration. In 2013, Boreal Books published her first collection Pause, Traveler. She has been awarded a Rasmuson Foundation Fellowship, a Connie Boochever Award, and an Alaska Literary Award. Her work has been most recently published in Prairie Schooner, Alaska Quarterly Review, Sugar House Review, and was a finalist for the 49th Parallel Contest for the Bellingham Review.


"With clarity and grace, Erin Coughlin Hollowell cleaves into the liminal spaces between living and merely existing, between the past and forgetting, between mother and daughter, and brings us these hard-won and resilient gifts from her journey. Every Atom is a book that you need to read, because in it are the poems that matter."--Kevin Goodan, author of Let the Voices

"Erin Hollowell has written a stunning and beautiful tribute to a mother as she slips away into loss of memory and belonging in a body and family. And yet the richness of relation here--wreckage and tenderness--is a balm for the losses we all know we will suffer on behalf of those who have given us our lives and for our very selves. 'Saint Crow, ' she writes, for darkness is indeed an entrance into the holy in these wise and nourishing poems."--Alison Hawthorne DemingStairway to Heaven

"There comes a moment in every Erin Coughlin Hollowell poem when the heart threatens to burst open and spill light."--Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Hummingbird's Daughter
"Despite its distressing subject, Every Atom is a stirring book. Hollowell's masterful writing and her profound reflections on her mother's final year hold us and carry us through this grave but illuminating collection."--John Morgan for Cirque Magazine
