10 Things about the upcoming release This Is Not About Love
Hey Wordsmiths! Happy Monday! I hope your V-day weekend was super sweet!
It’s well past lunchtime over here so I encourage you to eat something if you haven’t already. And enjoy these tasty tidbits a/b my upcoming poetry collection. Here we go:
1. I adore these poems! No question. Ask any writer what an accomplishment that is.
2. Exactly 2 of these poems were previously accepted by journals/mags but had to be pulled cos folks didn’t wanna ack right 🙃
3. One of the poems was first written while I was in undergrad at Appstate.
4. One poem mixes both English et française.
5. Parentheticals prove extremely important in this collection.
6. I tried my hand at a duplex after a Jericho Brown online class and Yaaas!! 👌🏾👏🏾
7. There are 3 previously published pieces in this collection.
8. I try my best to evoke time, and place in these poems.
9. These poems are about you! Yes, YOU!
10. I’ll be in conversation w/DeMisty D. Bellinger on April 10th (info below) and I hope you’ll join us to talk This is Not About Love. Get a copy here from BLF Press
