  • The Sum of Who You Are

    by Winifred Smith Eure
    Times like these, during the Covid-19 Pandemic, afford us the opportunity of spending more times alone. We can drown ourselves in self-pity or choose to make the most of it. We can take a closer, better look at ourselves, the outer and inner appearance and ask ourselves, if we like what we see? If not we have the time to work on ourselves and make creative and enduring changes. My book The Sum of Who You Are shines a spotlight on those things that have concerned me and perhaps you as I take a ... more

  • If I Settle Down...: Poems

    by Charles B. Cross

    "What I find most compelling about Charles Cross's poetry is his profound relationship with words, his ability to stitch together exquisite images the way a talented quilter brings together pieces of fabric to create something endearing and warm, full of life and history. With his words, Cross plunges us into a world of coonhounds and bothersome flies, revolution, and a timeless sense of place in the Appalachian mountains. His poetic style is rooted in the classics in both form and c... more

  • Serendipity and Craic

    by Alan Clegg
    What a colourful life the author of these poems has led and it certainly shows in his various works. I love that they are not all of the same cloth from a subject and mood perspective. From the seriousness of What land is this I gaze upon? with its uplifting, almost spiritual words which build up the scene so masterfully to the tongue-in-cheek humour of Gary the Grasshopper, - the Matatu and -the Auldest Swinger in Town, the diversity is fabulous. As whole I found the poetry extremely clever and... more
  • Balancing

    by Kathleen Ernst
    The poems in Kathleen Ernst’s Balancing were inspired by the experiences of women who, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, sought new homes in the Upper Midwest. The first waves of pioneers, predominantly Yankees from northeastern states, were soon followed by European immigrants. Few women recorded their struggles and satisfactions, but by juxtaposing research and imagination, Kathleen breathes new life into their forgotten stories.
  • The Reflection of Perception

    by John Milor
    This is a small collection of my best poems, which I started writing over thirty years ago. My poems break down into three general categories: God, Existential, and Love. I try to make a concrete point with all of my poems; in fact, my poem titled "Poems" defines exactly what my poems entail. I appreciate complexity, so the majority of my poems also rhyme.
