-- Patricia Shields, author and poet
Reminiscent of Cohen but more biting. A gifted, eloquent, and very brave bard.
-- Katherine L. Gordon, author and poet
The lyricist of our nation, determined to give the oftentimes untold stories of personal tragedies; the conveyor in the most exquisitely personable language of seasonal wisdoms; and perhaps among the leading spokespersons for the reinstatement of the poetic voice in contemporary verses.
—Conrad Didiodato, author and poet
Your poetry has an uncommon, common touch: it touches something in each of us, gives us a word, a phrase, a picture that we can easily relate to. Poetry that does what poetry is meant to do: communicate!
—Carol A. Stephen, author and poet
The poetry of Andreas Gripp takes hold of readers like a beguiling scent, evoking both nostalgia and the transcendence of memory from the moment it is apprehended. This is poetry of common life, a relatable and lyrical poetry which propels itself like a song newly sung yet undeniably familiar.
—Chris Morgan, Scene Magazine
I love your craftsmanship, your sense of rhythm, and deployment of consonance and assonance and internal rhyme. It's poetry after my own heart, poetry that dares unabashedly to be beautiful when discussing hard things. Poetry that knows that rolling your car and landing upside-down in a ditch gives you a new perspective on the ground above and the sky below.
—Richard-Yves Sitoski, Owen Sound Poet Laureate
You are my favourite living poet, no disrespect to all my other favourites because they are dead. I don't say that lightly, having shelves of poetry books. We won't mention the living writers because it's not fair to compare when I adore your writings so.
—Amber Dawn Pullin, poet
