“Sarah Law’s work lives between experiment and lyric, the avant-garde and the mainstream, welcoming all with open ears and eyes. Informed by mystery as much as by mastery of form, her work sings in the dark and glows in the silence. She is an astonishing and original voice, whose poetry always entices and delights.”  Rupert Loydell
