THE ANSWER FOR YOUR MANUSCRIPT

SOPHOMORE STOMP Lisa Devon Lisa Devon's second book of poetry is even more impactful than her first. These powerful poems about current social issues will light a fire in your soul to change the world. Her work beats with the rhythm of today and she does not back down from tough themes. Her ability to visualize in words current events is uncanny. Spoken word in written form often lacks delivery on the page, but not this work. You will find yourself wanting to stand-up and speak the words yourself. If you are socially conscious read this book for motivation. If you are a working womcchan you will find poems to empower you. If you have not read poetry since high school, read this book to gain a new perspective on what poetry can be.
IT’S NOT LOVE, UNFORTUANTELY Lylanne Musselman It's Not Love, Unfortunately is a volume of poetry that explores experiences with relationships over a span of a lifetime; from finding out early on that moms and dads are not all like Ward and June Cleaver, to learning that boys are after more than friendship in junior high, to marrying at eighteen and learning what an abusive relationship is all about, to finding the survivor within, divorcing, and after years of searching for love...finally coming out around forty years old, the poet finds that relationships with women can be just as frustrating and abusive as those with men...and that no matter what station you are in life, and no matter what side of the fence you sit on...love never comes easy and is even harder to find. Nevertheless, this volume of poems will leave you with a few tears and a few smiles, but will never leave you feeling alone. No matter who you are, if you've ever loved or searched for love you will recognize yourself in these poems. If you're a Baby Boomer, you will find that the poet incorporates a lot of pop culture from the 1960s and 1970s that will bring memories rushing back, if you're a GenXer or a Millennial, you will find there's some familiar territory here for you too, but all readers will find the clear connection is relationships, for better or worse, make us into who we are. If we're lucky, we will have interesting stories (poems) to tell, even if "it's not love, unfortunately."
WOUNDED WINGS: A LESBIAN JOURNEY OF LOVE AND LOSS Elizabeth Kidwell Wounded Wings is a work of love; a unique fusion of poetry and prose that reveals a wondrous relationship between two women. While the book begins as a story of heart wrenching loss and grief, it slowly unfolds to reveal a complex tale of personal sacrifice, selfless national service, and the gradual aging process, consistently balanced by the joys of daily life and a thirst for adventure, always set firmly in the blessings of unconditional love and the glories of the natural world. Elizabeth Kidwell was born in Los Angeles, California, growing up in the produce-rich San Joaquin River Valley, sixty miles from San Francisco, before returning to Los Angeles for her last year of high school and four years of college. While serving ten years as a nun in the LA area, she began her career in education, teaching high school and junior high students for five years. Seeking to live in a much smaller city with four distinct seasons, she left Los Angeles behind and moved to Indianapolis, earning her Masters Degree at the University of Indianapolis. Thirteen years later, while playing softball for an older women's league at Broad Ripple Park, she met her life partner, who threw her out at first base!
THE PROVIDENCE OF GRASS Eric Fisher Stone The Providence of Grass is a poetry collection that invites the reader to be humble before and to accept the slow moving, though inevitable realities of death and the cosmos. One central image of the book is grass, a plant that usurps empires and breaks through abandoned concrete. The transience of specific places, even the entire Earth, is illuminated, and the far future of the sun enveloping the world (what astronomers say will happen in several billion years) is mentioned more than once. The reader confronts the impermanence of life.
