First Collected Works Of Chicago-Area Author Released

September 16, 2008

Available immediately – a collection of poetry from Robert Ropars. This is the first in a series to be released periodically by the author.

Oswego, IL (PRnine – September 16, 2008) – “As an artist,” shares Ropars, “I am compelled to explore the passions the drive us into, through and out of love and relationships.” Noting that he can’t draw to save his life, Ropars explains that “he draws with words;” poems being his canvas.

“I am thrilled to be able to release my first poetry collection covering twenty years of writing. I am hard at work as the next volume continuing to look at love, passion and relationships in the 21st century.” In the meantime, he invites those interested in love, passion, romance, loss and poetry in general to explore “Carriage Returns.”
