queer / survivor / runner
poet based in Colorado
Herrin writes about the various forms of love, surviving sexual trauma, and healing
through the lenses of bisexuality and feminism, while emphasizing the curative powers
of our natural world.
Sunday Mornings At The River, 2022
One Thousand Good Answers takes Herrin’s first collection and, using the blackout method, creates a whole new body of work.
In the wreckage of new trauma, and with a determination to heal,
Herrin revisits the old experience of abandonment and betrayal to rewrite her own self-love story.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
My favorite kind of media is that which allows or invites me to emote, and I have found so many in this collection that does just that. Sarah’s poems are emotive and connecting – many poems in this book have nurtured my spirit.
