One of my friends was told that since she is a poet, her job in these chaotic times is to write poems. And so, I believe my job, after June 24th, is also to write (and I did), and now, as a book editor and designer, I thought I should make a book, too. And put it out there, soon. My co-editor at Anhinga Press, Kristine Snodgrass, was as excited about the book as I am. Yay! Anhinga Press will publish Rumors, Secrets, and Lies. We are a small established poetry press founded in 1974, so soon to be 50 years old. — Carol Lynne Knight
Rumors, Secrets, and Lies is a collection of narrative poems, prose poems, flash fiction — stories about abortions, unplanned pregnancies and joyous births. How women, and men, navigated this charged emotional landscape before and during Roe v. Wade.
140 writers sent us their stories, including Naomi Shihab Nye & Alicia Ostriker.
