“Corrina Bain’s long-anticipated first collection, Debridement, shows what’s possible in poetry when you pour enough blood into the page and craft what rises to the surface. With a formal inventiveness that serves the brute bravery of this work, these poems have no qualm reaching down your throat and pulling out your living heart just to say look at it, look. Look.” —Sam Sax, NEA Fellow, author of sad boy / detective and A Guide to Undressing Your Monsters
Looking ahead to August, our next anthology, Before Passing, features stunning poetry and short fiction by national and international writers from across the United States and beyond. It will also feature an interview with Anne Waldman. Submissions for our 2016 collection will reopen October 15 2015. Check out all our anthologies including I Let Go of the Stars in My Hand.
And speaking of Anne Waldman, this what she said about Aimee Herman’s meant to wake up feeling: “Visceral, insistent, beyond transgressive, meant to wake up feeling does just that. Gratitude to Aimee Herman for getting under our skin, and moving poetry-in-discourse into the feminist present and future where we study and yearn for the salvation of humanity.” Wow!
