“Elizabeth Robin’s To My Dreamcatcher is a wonderfully crafted collection of adventure, acceptance, loss, and rebirth that leaves her readers craving more with the turn of every page.”–Alexander Yucas, author of Tracks

Elizabeth RobinElizabeth Robin retired to Hilton Head Island after a 33-year teaching career to write. To My Dreamcatcher, Robin’s first full-length collection, begins with a bird’s journey and winds through encounters with ghosts and dreamcatchers, trees and rushing falls, to a spiritual place inside a painting, the moon, a national park. As she travels through her past in the title poem, “To My Dreamcatcher,” an elegy to her late husband, she moves from margins to the page’s middle, and finds a comfortable place in which to tell her story.

She also has two chapbooks through Finishing Line Press, Where Green Meets Blue (2018) and Silk Purses and Lemonade (2017). In 2021 Robin won the Carrie McCray Nickens Fellowship and the John Edward Johnson Prize. A poet that tells the stories of those pushed into the margins, her recent work appears in Poetry on the Comet, Catfish Stew, The Poetry Society of SC Yearbook, Ripples, Ukweli, Drunk Monkeys, The Broadkill Review, and Local Life Magazine. Robin emcees an open mic and partners with arts groups to bring literati to Hilton Head Island.
