Rebecca McKeown grew up in a small Western New York college town, which has inspired many of her fictional settings. A horror and fantasy junkie, McKeown creates stories about normal people thrown into very abnormal situations. She writes poems about whatever strikes her–heartbreak, a memory from childhood, a fictional character’s thoughts put into verse. McKeown’s love of poetry and literature goes beyond writing it, as she is also the Editor-in-Chief and founder of The Rampallian literary magazine.
Courtship is dead and love isn't sweet. Instead, it tangles us and tears at us until we breakdown and bless the bitter nights when love was true.
BLESS THE BITTER NIGHT is a collection of eighteen poems about failed love in the modern world.
