Judith Skillman lets us see through her to ourselves, not as through a glass darkly, but with glorious light. -- Stephen Meats, Editor, The Midwest Quarterly

Judith Skillman has already amply demonstrated her ability to document the fragile ecology of domestic relationships with the resolutely unsentimental eye of the naturalist. -- Deborah Woodward, Prairie Schooner

Judith Skillman is a poet whose mind, memory, and imagination appear more compelling than the mundane realities of her life. Her poems often include a kind of arrested motion that signals the clash of domestic chores with artistic contemplation. -- Madeline DeFrees

Judith Skillman is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Eric Mathieu King Fund from the Academy of American Poets, and the Stafford Award from the Washington Poets Association. Her poems have appeared in FIELD, Poetry, Southern Review, Seneca Review, The Iowa Review, Prairie Schooner, Northwest Review, and many other journals. She teaches for City University in Bellevue, Washington.
