R.L. Black reviews Darren C. Demaree's "Not for Art nor Prayer" in the latest edition of The Corner Club QuarterlyRead the full review here.


"I’ll give this collection five stars. Though I usually gravitate toward short poems, Mr.

Demaree has a way of writing a poem that makes the reader need to read it again and

again. And even in his longer poems, he still manages to somehow be a man of few words.

I’ll definitely be reading this collection again."

- R.L. Black, The Unbroken Journal
