Alice FrimanAlice FrimanAlice Friman, Georgia College’s Poet-in-Residence, will soon have her sixth collection published.

“The View from Saturn,” to be published by the Louisiana State University Press, is her third book since 2006.

“It endeavors to look at life objectively, from a distance, before focusing in on the emotional reality of the every day and what it means to be human,” said Friman.

The internationally acclaimed poet uses personal experiences in her writings.

“Poetry comes from the deepest part of you,” she said.  “I write from what I see and feel, and that can then transform into something bigger.”

Friman hopes her latest book sparks an interest in the arts for students.

“I encourage students to go to poetry readings and enjoy all the fine arts events on campus,” Friman said. “It can open your mind to new possibilities.”

Friman received the 2012 Georgia Author of the Year Award in Poetry. She is a recipient of a 2012 Pushcart Prize and is included in The Best American Poetry 2009.

“The View from Saturn” is scheduled for release during fall 2014.
