Her work has appeared in Blackbird, The Journal, The Cortland Review, Seneca Review, and Tar River Poetry.

“LAKE ERIE BLUE embodies what it means to know a place deeply, a rare delight in our rootless culture”–Karen Kovacik. “In LAKE ERIE BLUE, Susan Grimm has created a vibrant and haunted city of desire lying along a great lake that ripples with mystery. She sings of the one place we know more and less about than any other:home”–David Citino.
