"Christina Strigas wrties with elegance but she sometimes injects such grittiness and truth into her lines about the melancholy of the past and of relationships. This is honest poetry. Her work is so honest and personal that you feel that she's writing about you and your own experiences. She is a serious talent, a contemporary poetic voice that reminds me of the honest and senusual work of Ellen Bass."
- Nicholas Trandahl, author and poet
"Her poem 1973 literally brought me to tears. I connected with her words and the story woven within. Ms. Strigas' book is beautiful, emotionally raw and completely captivating."
-Paris Andren, author of Pointe of Darkness
"I have never read a poet who speaks my thoughts right back to me the way Christina Strigas does. Whether she's writing about drinking shots of Metaxa and Greek coffee for six days straight or how his words were like scissors snipping the thread to let out her soul, I can feel every word."
-Chrissi Sepe, author
"Your Ink on My Soul reached in and tugged at emotions I had forgotten ever existed within me. And now, likeany great poetry book, I find something new, something much deeper, each time I read it and I want more."
- April Green, poet, author of Earthsong
