Motels Where We Lived

Motels Where We Lived was published in April of 2014, by Unicorn Press, in Greensboro, North Carolina. Unicorn Press was founded in 1967, and I am thrilled, and honored, to have a book carried by Unicorn, who also publish Daniel Berrigan and Ana Istaru. In May 2015, Motels Where We Lived has been noted as a Finalist for the Maine Literary Award in Poetry

Millikin-Motels-Where-We-Lived-small“Claire Millikin’s second full-length collection, Motels Where We Lived, explores the hopefulness and precariousness of youth. Precisely hewn but expansive, these poems take as their materials snowy winter evenings, modern art, the life of Greta Garbo, and more. The poet’s sharpness of vision creates an intimacy that invites us ever further into scenes of discovery, enchantment, loss, and confrontation.”
