Art Elser's chapbook a 2014 Colorado Authors' League winner

Art Elser

WyoPoets treasurer Art Elser's chapbook, We Leave the Safety of the Sea, was recently named a 2014 Colorado Authors' League Writing Award winner.

The chapbook compiles poems about his combat experiences in Vietnam; selections were chosen from 20 years of writing. He described putting his war experiences on paper as a healing experience in the article on the WyoPoets site.

Art actually lives in Colorado, but we get to claim him here in Wyoming thanks to his longtime membership in and service to WyoPoets.

His book may be ordered from Finishing Line Press.
