Reviews




Booklist reviewed Elise Paschen's THE NIGHTLIFE in their May 15, 2017 issue! They praise the collection saying, "[Paschen] achieves breathtaking perfection of craft and form. . . . As these poised, elegant, wry, and knowing poems crisply unlock and gracefully unfurl, they reveal fresh perceptions at every turn."

“From this she carved her own redemption through poetry and, along the way, influenced not only other poets in Los Angeles but also people who did not know they enjoyed poetry.”

Elise Paschen's THE NIGHTLIFE received glowing praise from F Newsmagazine's Natasha Mijares. Take a look at what Mijares has to say and then check out Elise's amazing collection!

A Foreword Reviews LGBTQ+ Spotlight issue features our very own Gabriel Jesiolowski!

"how to get over is an instruction manual for the hopeless navigating uncomfortable personal spaces where the need to transform begins."

Jesiolowski has a fine grasp of craft and emotion.

"Her poetry is always translating something—experiences, cultures, memories—for someone else."

"Tuffaha’s poems are required reading material for any Arab-American literature list, and for all Americans whose knowledge of the Middle East ends at what the media reports."

Congratulations to Siel Ju on this amazing interview with Fiction Writers Review!

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh praises Verónica Reyes for her collection of poetry.

"All good stories turn on conflict, but there is a plethora of discord and tension in ?Kinship of Clover.? At times, it almost overwhelms the story, requiring attentive reading so as not to get lost in the entangling threads of drama."

"With his mastery of language and eye for detail, Doyle's characters always feel authentic, and their ups and downs are realistically proportioned. His gift for finding the sublime in even the small and dirty details is alive and gleaming in this short story collection." --Julia Jenkins, librarian and blogger at pagesofjulia

"This meditative, grace-filled gem is moving and soul-enriching." -- Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines

Barrelhouse says Rozema's essays are "humble, honest, insightful, and, like the best essays on any topic, but especially ones tinged with spirituality, they aren’t too sure about any one thing. They’re spiced with litanies of 'maybe.' Which is, well, a blessing." Click here to read the the full article!

"Taut, beautifully written, and suspenseful, this resonant, feminist drama eschews easy answers. A page-turner of the highest caliber."

“Delightful. . . . A nimble and very funny collection of stories from a writer who clearly values the human condition in all its myriad forms.”
