New Ohio Review features poem from Lisa Krueger’s forthcoming collection, FLORIOGRAPHY CHILD!

Date: June 1, 2023

History of Desire I. In the photographmy mother is ten;she poses in a ruffled dressand hand-me-down coatthat swallows her armsthe way shame swallowspeople whole. Lost in the oversize. Standingnear a clapboard porch.She knows she is poor,one of the poorest; her shoesare too tight. Other childrentease her about the keyaround her neck. My mother makes drawingsof […]

Date: May 23, 2023

By Maurya Simon | Contributing Columnist During National Poetry Month in April 2013, I taught poetry to students at Mt. Baldy School. It was a great experience, and, ultimately, their hard work and inspiration coalesced into a lovely chapbook that several students compiled as keepsakes for the class. This past April and in May, I’m back at […]

In her ninth collection of poems, Ghost Apples, Katharine Coles interrogates and celebrates her relationship with the natural world and the various creatures who inhabit it, and in doing so asks what it means to be sentient and mortal on a fragile planet.

A PLUCKED ZITHER BY PHUONG T. VUONG (JUNE 6TH) This poetry collection explores migration, memory, language, and the experience of being a refugee.

Ann Poore reviews Katharine Coles’ GHOST APPLES for 15 Bytes!

Date: June 1, 2023

Ghost Apples, the ninth collection of poems by Katharine Coles – who might be a witch (IMHO) given the ready way she connects with animals (including her parrot Henri, pronounced in the American fashion) and who surely has a magical way with words and their readers – kept me sitting in a hot car for […]

Francesca Bell’s WHAT SMALL SOUND receives a Starred Review from Shelf Awareness!

Date: May 23, 2023

Francesca Bell (Bright Stain) writes poems that chime like the bell of her own name: bright but resonant, sharp but still familiar, lush and likely to echo long after its initial strike. What Small Sound is Bell’s second collection, and it brings together a haunting yet beautiful set of poems centered on the losses–or potential for them–that […]

Lake County Examiner features Kim Dower’s collection, SLICE OF MOON!

Date: May 23, 2023

Did you read “Slice of Moon,” our poetry book for May? If you didn’t, I don’t blame you; many people shy away from poetry, and I am one of them. However, I picked this offering for a reason. Dower’s work is accessible. It isn’t full of flowery language that you must spend minutes ruminating on […]

Recovering Words features Francesca Bell’s WHAT SMALL SOUND!

Date: May 16, 2023

Manifest Image The man keeps telling me I am beautiful.I still look young. He says it like I’ve asked for it,but I don’t care. For him or beauty. I am content to slip into old,wrinkled plainness, to walk on unimpeded. I was young once.My body stunned.My breasts were really something, but I was something else […]

WHAT SMALL SOUND by Francesca Bell Reviewed in Caesura Literary!

Date: May 15, 2023

This collection immediately thrusts us into scenes of relative comfort and privilege that are all too often interrupted by the violent horrors plaguing this current time. Mind you, the terms comfort and privilege are used loosely here, as the speaker and characters will not be delivered complete relief or freedom from these trials. However, the […]

Brenda Cárdenas’ TRACE featured in ‘La Treintena 2023: 30 (Something) Books of Latinx Poetry’!

Date: May 11, 2023

Over the past year, Latina/o/x poets spanning vast aesthetics, experiences, and geographies have dazzled me with collections that reveal the complexity and beauty of our communities in all their irreducible differences. A few books by Latina/o/x poets have garnered significant mainstream attention, including Cynthia Cruz’s darkly beautiful Hotel Oblivion, winner of the National Book Critics […]
