“Conley’s poems are gifts of substance and truth wrapped in tantalizing metaphors. She is thoroughly at home in the quirky mysteries of experience…”  --The Parallel Press, 2000

“Conley writes out of curiosity about the world around her. Much of what she puts into words is born out of an encounter with people … She likes to capture the subtle and unexpected ways life changes us …”  -- Heather Lee Schroeder, The Capital Times, 2001

“To name some favorites from the past three years: the surreal lyricism of Francine Conley’s How Dumb the Stars…”  --J.M. Tyree, “Rhyme Scheme,” Isthmus, 2003
