Sarah Webb's Poetry

My poetry collection, Black, from Virtual Artists Collective was published in 2013.  It can be ordered through this website (best for me—Paypal) or at independent bookstores (the vacpoetry.org site can direct you to these), Powell's, or Amazon.

It is in stock in Austin, TX at BookWoman and Malvern Books. In Oklahoma City it is carried by Full Circle Bookstore.

The best for me is if you will order from this website or buy at a reading.

The poems in Black come in large or small ways from the peoples of all the major religions and shamanism. Poems call on the traditions of every continent as well as from ancients living before times in memory. I made up modern myths too and told stories from science and everyday life.

My aim in all of it was to find the root beneath the hints and stories. What is it that we all share, that we sense beneath the surface?

Leaving Crosstimbers

I have submitted my resignation as Poetry and Fiction Editor to Crosstimbers

It has been a great time in my life, these twelve years working with Cecil Lee and Ingrid Shafer and the many marvelous poets and writers who published in the journal.  We started local and explored Oklahoma and our place on the Plains, but we grew to a community of writers nationwide and then worldwide in countries like Austria, Lebanon, and Australia.  I am proud of Crosstimbers and the voice we gave to so many writers and artists.  I felt we represented our college, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, in its truest mission, that of encouraging creation and insight across disciplines.

The future of the journal is uncertain.  It may continue online under Ingrid's editorship or it may be replaced with a more academic publication.  When I hear, I'll post the outcome of the deliberations.  If Crosstimbers does continue, I'll let you know where to send your writing.  

Thank you for sharing such wonderful work.  It's been a rich diet reading it and working with you.
