About the Author
DANUSHA LAMERIS lives in Santa Cruz, California, where, after completing a B.A. in Fine Arts at U.C. Santa Cruz, she studied at the Squaw Valley Writers Workshops and with the poet Ellen Bass. Her poems have been published in: American Poetry Review, New Letters, Crab Orchard Review, Poetry Northwest, Alaska Quarterly Review, The SUN, and Rattle, among other journals. Her work has also been included in several anthologies, including The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry. Her poem, Riding Bareback, was selected by Gary Young as the winner of the 2013 Morton Marcus Memorial Poetry, while another poem, The God of Numbers, received a special mention in the 2015 Pushcart Prize anthology. The Moons of August, her first book, was chosen by Naomi Shihab Nye as the winner of the 2013 Autumn House Press Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the 2015 Bingham University Milt Kessler Poetry Book Award. She teaches ongoing, independent writing workshops, as well as working with individual writers.
Reviews
The poems of Danusha Lameris are more than "a faint scrawl on the parchment of the heart" as she boldly maps her relation to self, others, nature, history, and the higher power that governs all aspects of existence. In The Moons of August, Lameris gives the reader the gift of insight into the meaning of life with all of its uncertainties and pain. These are poems of grace and truth. Sonja James, "The Journal (WV)""
