Stories from Eden
"In this 50th anniversary year of Rachel Carson's classic, Silent Spring, Carla Martin-Wood has devoted the entire first section of her newest collection to the environment. If Carson's book was a wakeup call, Shadows over Eden, eleven poems in Martin-Wood’s Stories from Eden, is a blistering, yet mournful plea on behalf of Gaia and her children." Margot Brown, Editor, Fortunate Childe Anthologies, Pushcart Prize nominee, author Leave of Absence (The Pink Petticoat Press)
Into the Windfall Light
Nine-time Pushcart Prize nominee Carla Martin-Wood boldly confronts loss in this latest collection of her moving and lyrical poems. Yet, the poet finds victory over sorrow and mourning through the learned art of uncovering beauty in mundane and unexpected places. Stunning imagery, a tapestry of dark and light. A must-read!
Three-time Pushcart Prize nominee Brenda Levy Tate sweeps us away into fascinating waters, on which we can float gently, carried along by elegant and unexpected imagery, or dive deep and find ourselves pulled into a maelstrom of complex symbolism. A literary feast not to be missed!
Leave of Absence
In her debut chapbook, Margot Brown explores coming of age and coming to grips with relationships, loss, loneliness, the discovery that our idols often leave muddy tracks across our hearts, and finding that our love for them is not diminished. A gritty, urbane slice of life in retrospect to which so many of us can relate. Heartily recommended!
