The Golem Verses

Brown book cover with white lettering that reads “The Golem Verses” and “Poems by Diane R. Wiener” (italicized). Illustration by Lucy Wales, featuring a child on a swing suspended from a beanstalk among the clouds and serotonin molecules in the sky.

My first full-length poetry collection, The Golem Verses, was published in 2018 by Nine Mile Press. The book can be purchased at the Nine Mile website, and is available as an ebook on iBooks and Amazon. You can also purchase a signed copy at Gallery 41 in Owego or at the Syracuse University Bookstore.
