I was recently published in a literary collection called Desolate Country: We the Poets, United, Against Trump published by 39 West Press and Art Uprising. It was a fast response to the immediate feelings of the (at the time) impending Trump presidency. It’s doing quite well on Amazon charts and I hope people continue to buy it as any extra money made from it goes to Planned Parenthood. It also, features work from fellow resident, Jen Harris.
The speed at which the 39 West team put this together is truly impressive and It was a pleasure to be a part of this process. I will say as a poet in Kansas City, I have to remind myself just how amazing it is to have these small publishers here. This is something that I could have never imagined in my childhood.
