My first chapbook is out!
I’m so happy to announce the publication of my first chapbook, Dressing the Wounds, out this month from dancing girl press, an indie press and design studio in Chicago. The press publishes an annual chapbook series featuring the work of women poets, and my manuscript was one of those chosen by Editor Kristy Bowen during the dgp annual open reading period last summer. The gorgeous front and back cover art pictured below were made by painter & poet Laura Page. If you are in the Western MA area, please join me for a reading to celebrate the book on Thursday, October 24, from 7:00-8:30pm at the Smith College Poetry Center, Wright Hall, Smith College, Northampton, MA.
So wonderful, my brave, talented, thoughtful, hard working, observant, loving, and seriously poetic daughter. You deserve the acclaim and I can’t wait to hold your chapbook in my hands.
