The anthology is here, and I am so thrilled! I had a poem published in Tennessee’s Best Emerging Poets. The poem in this book is one I actually wrote a few years ago, when I moved back to Nashville, my hometown, after being away for college.
I have been writing poetry since I was very young and was an English and Creative Writing major in college. My thesis was a collection of poems. Throughout my whole life, I find that I always return to poetry at certain periods. Sometimes I am not reading or writing poetry at all, and then something happens, some event, that inspires me to write again.
Now, I feel so grateful to see my work in print. If you have any interest in poetry, if you are a southerner yourself, or if you simply want to read something that might inspire you or make you think, I would encourage you to get a copy of this lovely little collection. Topics range from life and memories to love and heartbreak to nature and the outdoors. There is something for everyone, and I truly feel you might find something meaningful to relate to in this book.
You can find it here. Read and write on, my friends.
