“…individual, accessible, and ‘American’ in the broadest and best sense of that difficult term.”

The State (Columbia, S.C.)

Creosote…offers a wide range of perspectives including the obsessions of a spiritual mystic, the love and anguish of a sensitive father and the often humorous self-examination of a serious artist.

Ken McCullough is a gifted poet whose vision is intelligent and piercing. These poems are the flesh of one writer’s spirit, finely erected bulwarks against the forces of destruction.

Best Sellers

Creosote reveals a nexus of emotion and intellect patient enough to wait for the gift given up out of the primal, psychic twilight which shades experience and dreams. The resultant originality of vision is, then…always superior to the drenchingly dull verse so common across a wide spectrum of publications—traditional, sportive, and avant garde. Ken is awake to himself and otherness, and courageous enough to support the vulnerability necessary to the creative act.
