Merrijane Rice

Engineers design structures to carry physical weight; poets build structures to carry meaning.

Merrijane Rice's poem "Stillborn"is being featured in the Mormon Lit Blitz today.

Some people are confused at how strongly I feel about Mormon literature--many feel the term is an outright oxymoron. But read Merrijane's poem and I think you'll see how craft and content can come together in a way that is both moving and lasting.

Religion can bring a lot to writing; when I read work like this, I also feel like writing can bring something to religion.
