“Waring's poems forcibly avoid the workshop warp. From the opening, her language lashes. . . . Anyone would be convinced of both her originality and her toughness. . . . Waring uses tactics that women singers have known about for a long time: the balm of the work song and the empowering sounds a brassy belter makes as she sings of a tough life that earns her a living.”
--Voice Literary Supplement
“While many poets are putting retreads on worn rhetoric, Belle Waring, like some scat-singing postmodern jazz canary, is shaping a music equal to our national imagination. Refuge is by turns insouciant and despairing as it portrays the givers and seekers of sanctuary. . . .Belle Warning is charming without being slight, unsentimental without being cold.”
