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.

 

Ron Arias in Front of the Camera

Red Bird author Ron Arias was recently featured in a video regarding his work with clay.  Between working with Ron as editor on his collection My Life as a Pencil, enjoying my coffee from one of his clay mugs, and regularly looking up at another mug he made (adorned with our wonderful red bird) which sits on my writing desk, I can attest to his skill in both art forms.  Check out the video here.

Lisa Mangini's "Bird Watching at the End of the World" published by WordTech Communications is now available from Amazon

Lisa Mangini, author of Perfect Objects in Motion and Immanuel Kant vs. God, has a poetry collection out with WordTech Communications.

"Fabulous in their diction, the poems of Lisa Mangini present a world of sadness and grace, particle and wave. Victims of the body, shadowed by the eighth Deadly Sin--not to be loved--these lovely vessels stuffed with philosophical gleanings and lyrical meditations make possible a future for poetry, and thus, for us."
- Alan Michael Parker
