Phuong T. Vuong’s A PLUCKED ZITHER featured in Soapberry Review

Date: June 6, 2023

In this work of poetry, Vuong unbinds what gets lost while carrying the aftermath from Vietnamese voices that have been longing to breathe after the disruption from wars, migration, and silence. In other words, through the trajectory of these poems, Vuong’s speaker processes and dwells on the migrant’s emotional experience.

PACIFIC LIGHT by David Mason featured in Review 31

Date: June 6, 2023

A strong poetic sensibility is combined with a successful conversational style in several insightful accounts of familiar situations, like seeing people in airports that one thinks one knows (‘Long Haul’), the art of learning ‘to do almost nothing’ after an incapacitation (‘Letter to my Right Foot’), and the way a holiday can open one’s eyes […]

Peninsula Clarion’s Off the Shelf recommends H Warren’s BINDED!

Date: June 6, 2023

I’ve always found poetry a bit intimidating. Sometimes I think I know where one is going, then out of nowhere I’m thrown for a loop and left puzzled with a ring of SAT prep words circling my head like cartoon birds. Some are confusing from the get-go. I was determined this week, however, to dive […]

Kirkus Reviews features Laila Halaby’s THE WEIGHT OF GHOSTS!

The illegitimate daughter of a white mother and a Jordanian father, Halaby, author of two novels and two collections of poetry, felt that she was a “fiction…squished between other people’s tall tales.” Many years later, when her son Raad was killed in a car accident, the author was forced to redefine the true and singular […]

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 […]
