Sara writes the poetry column, “Poetry Matters” for Southern Writers Magazine. Her newest book of poems, Sometimes the Little Town, was published February 14, 2016 and is based on the photography of Hobby Robinson to complement the new installation of his photos at The Heritage Museum of Harrisonburg and East Rockingham, Virginia. Her other poetry books include, Stones for Words (2014), a 2015 Library of Virginia Literary Award nominee. This volume continues the inner discovery of how she came to write poetry. In her chapbook, A Cruise in Rare Waters (2013) she describes her trip through the inside passage of Alaska and how the spirit of the landscape and people affected her. Her inaugural poetry book, Two Little Girls in a Wading Pool (2012), nominated in 2012 for a Library of Virginia Literary Award, tells of her life experiences growing up in a small town and how she sees the world today in her later years. Her poems have appeared in the online journal of the Poetry Society of Virginia, Piedmont Virginian magazine, Poetica, the Blue Ridge Anthology, the Virginia Literary Journal and others. Her first published work, Love Always, Hobby and Jessie (2009) is a memoir about her famous photographer father, Hobby Robinson, and his marriage to her enigmatic mother.
Among her appearances are Artist First Radio Network, the Hilda Ward show: Artistic Expressions, WMRA's The Spark, and the Bridgewater International Poetry Festival. She teaches a UVA/OLLI course on Contemporary American Poets, is founder of the Lonesome Mountain Pros(e) Writers Workshop and conducts a weekly poetry group at The Colonnades retirement community.
