Vouching For Poetry

In my latest post for Vouched Books, I briefly discuss poet Rachel Patterson’s chapbook IF I AM BURNING, which is available through Main Street Rag, a publishing company based in Charlotte. You can read the whole post here. Read it! (please?) It’s not that long. Encouraging people to read books, and specific books that I love and admire, should be really easy, and in discussion it is, but when writing out the Why is actually fairly challenging for me. I start thinking about the cohesion of my sentences, word choices, paragraphs, the What Am I Trying To Say that is a challenge in academic and creative writing, regardless of one’s experience.

I’ll keep it simple: read Rachel’s book. You won’t be disappointed.
