You Find Yourself Believing in Things
Born and raised in Cleveland, Deborah Gilbert received a B.A. from the College of Wooster and an M.A from Cleveland State University. Her literary activities include being editor of The Black River Review and coordinator of the Ohio Poetry Day Association’s Poet-of-the-Year Award.
“Her wisdom, wit, humor, mystery, and agile techniques will instantly attract readers to Deborah Gilbert’s poems. But what will intrigue them most is her intensity: ‘Ice at her center,’ ‘You have seen how she claws her way. . .,’ ‘Nothing to say. To No one. Never,’ ‘Truth seeks no answers, because truth permits no questions.’ Readers will be jolted alive by such poems. I look forward to Deb Gilbert’s next book.” –Alberta Turner
