From one Red Bird author to another...

One of the beautiful things that keeps me so energized about the work we at Red Bird do is the fact that our authors care deeply for one another's work.  Day after day as I read manuscripts, receive queries, and see what our authors are up to online I feel a deep sense of community and I am ever grateful for that.  

This morning, during my morning mental stroll through Facebook I stumbled across a post by Donna Vorreyer about a recently published collection: Kathleen Kirk's "The ABCs of Women's Work."  And again in my email this morning a link to the post.  One author engaging with and sharing the work of another.  True community.  

You can check out Donna's post here.  And her chapbooks, "The Imagined Life of the Pioneer Wife" and "Encantado" are available in our Offerings, as is Kathleen's collection.  Two of Red Bird's many talented authors, connecting with one another, their collections ready to connect with you.

Geraldine Buchanan's "Draw Your Horizon Line Low" is a collection of poems that resonate and reverberate with every reading. There are tigers and lovers and friends and the irony of a life fully lived. Most of all there is truth observed with "no filters".

Paula Cisewski's "Misplaced Sinister" is a collection of lyric prose that explores (among other things) family, relationships, handedness, language, history, and mythology. Paula's poetic sensibilities amplify the narrative - her syntax, phrasing and image choices deftly working together.

James C Henderson's "Chasing Delight" is a reminder that each day, year, decade, life is made up of small, individual moments. These moments, these little interactions, have incredible power if we see them for the wonders they are. If we consider how each builds and adds to the sum of our whole, our happiness, our contentment, our lives. James writes of the moments of his life vividly, compassionately, and also with a wry sense of humor that reminds us not to take ourselves or our lives too seriously.

Eric Hove's "Strange Friend" is a chapbook that makes you want to savor, the language precise, the tone contemplative without being preachy. Sort of like enjoying a fine wine, a little tart, a little sweet, a little aftertaste and a lingering feeling of warmth.
