Ronda Broatch received 2007 GAP Award funding to work on revising and finding a publisher for her full-length poetry manuscript titled Rib of New Fruit. These poems “represent the themes of water, earth and the archetypal feminine. They address what it means…to find wisdom in the habits of fish, and to discover the female through images of apples, mud and rain on the roof….Threading through the manuscript is an underlying current of spirituality with images rooted deep in Northwest soil [and the] border region where natural and human realms commingle.”
