Selkie Singing at the Passing Place

Sarah Miller & Melanie Rees


Sarah and Melanie met when they shared a big white house on an island, next to a passing place. They waded out, sang selkie songs to a seal they named Sir Douglas, shared stories, poems, wine and secrets, and decided to create something together. Selkie Singing at the Passing Place is their potent and poetic debut collection.


“Rees and Miller depict our awkward, impossible world using believable voices that complement each other, summoning up lovers, relatives and totemic birds to capture the idiocy / wonder / terror of life.” copland smith, poet “Love and joy are the predominant emotions: these are positive poems with their feet planted on the ground and their heads in the air.” Steven Waling, poet & reviewer
