Janet Buck, also known as Janet I. Buck, has made herself one of the most famous poems on the Internet with her intricate, heavily layered and sophisticated symbols. Incredibly vivid, her poems tell tales of loves lost and loved ones buried, with words and phrases that no one else could produce. The depth and complexity of her work deserves read after read, yet is perfectly clear from the first line.
Janet Buck is a three-time Pushcart Nominee and the author of four collections of poetry. Her work has recently appeared in Three Candles, PoetryBay, Red River Review, Artemis, The Pedestal Magazine, Runes, Stirring, Poetry Magazine.com, CrossConnect, Facets, Offcourse, The American Muse, and hundreds of journals world-wide. In 2001 and 2002, Buck has received awards from Kota Press, Sol Magazine, Kimera, L'Intrigue, and The Critical Poet. Her poem "Acrylic Thighs" was recently featured at The United Nation's Exhibit Hall in NYC.
