Emotional challenges, triumphs and losses are just a few of McGrath’s poetic themes. Grasping real events for her inspirations, she brings together unique experiences to express her entangled feelings about worldly events, nature, and love. Tightly enveloped poems of human emotion allow readers to travel into McGrath’s world of vivid scenery and detail. With her unique personal perspective and Newfoundland voice, McGrath writes from the heart. Diverse poetic styles affirm her talent as Escaped Domestics takes us on a personal journey where imaginative language and graphic imagery provide a unique connection between fantasy and reality.
