Critical Praise for Barbara Schmitz’s How Much Our Dancing Has Improved

Barbara has a huge mind–it took her a long time on her own arduous path to capture its extent from ground to heaven. But never fear, she was a midwesterner–she stubbornly continued until the paper reflected her true self…she launched a rocket all the way to eternity.
Natalie Goldberg – Author of Writing Down the Bones

Barbara Schmitz is the Lucinda Williams of the poetry world.
Paul Zarzyski – Author of Wolf Tracks on the Welcome Mat

Schmitz’s newest collection is a beautiful dance of words, of imagery, of spiritual testament, but finally and most of all: love.
