Bermudian Author Publishes Poetry Collection

December 30, 2014

Author Nancy Anne Miller has just released a new book entitled Immigrant’s Autumn: Poems of Exile, a work that takes a look at Bermuda, her native home, from the detached point of view of someone living away – specifically, Connecticut, United States.

According to the author’s official biography, “Nancy Anne Miller is a Bermudian poet. Her book Because There Was No Sea was published by Anaphora Literary Press in 2014. Somersault is forthcoming from Guernica Editions in 2015.

“Her poems have appeared in Edinburgh Review, Agenda, The International Literary Quarterly, Stand, Magma, Journal of Postcolonial Writing, The Dalhousie Review, The Toronto Quarterly blog, Postcolonial Text, Transnational Literatures, The Caribbean Writer, tongues of the ocean, Sargasso: Journal of Caribbean Literature, Moko: Caribbean Arts and Letters, The Missing Slate, among others.”


“She has poems forthcoming in The Arts Journal. She has an M Litt in Creative Writing from Univ. of Glasgow, is a MacDowell Fellow, is a three time recipient of Bermuda Art Council Grants.

“She teaches poetry workshops in Bermuda, and represented Bermuda in Poetry World Cup 2014. She was shortlisted for the small axe salon [Caribbean] poetry prize, and recently was guest editor for tongues of the ocean.”

One of Ms. Miller’s previous books, Because There Was No Sea, was officially reviewed by fellow Bermudian author Kim Aubrey, who said, “Nancy Anne Miller’s poems embrace island icons with a ruthless tenderness, teasing out their secrets and accepting with equal enthusiasm their surface beauty and their burdened hearts.

“Miller approaches the island’s difficult colonial history from a position of exile and with a wondrous ability to find and restore the paradisiacal as she explores the mysteries of one place through the lens of the other.”
