by William A.KofoedAfter publishing my first book of poems, Shadows of Footsteps, I thought about how I had written them. Over the course of thirty some years this how I did it; ‘I do not know why most poets write poetry but I know why I do so.

by Conor MacCormackA collection of metaphysical meditations, Lines of Life and Vision is a millennial poet's exploration of the spiritual in the morass of materialism that is the 21st century.

by Averta TeresaGOCCE DI LUCE è una raccolta di lettere e racconti brevi, una preziosa raccolta intessuta di perle. L’attenzione è posta non tanto sulle perle, ma sul filo che le tiene assieme, che come suggerito dai versi di apertura, rappresenta il ruolo del poeta/scrittore: invisibile, eppure essenziale. Ciascuna di queste “perle” è una storia diversa dalle altre: quasi tutte sono ambientate nel presente, ai giorni nostri; altre si situano in un tempo non ben definito. Nella maggior parte dei casi, il real... more

by Niccolea M NanceAlthough this book was inspired by Sexual Assault Awareness Month, instead of being a collection of "rape poems" it is a journey from the beginnings of pain through the darkness and struggle all the way to the healing, strength, and light on the other side. It begins in childhood and works its way to womanhood in a way that is laced with universal truths about pain and redemption.
