With Only Which She Could Carry

Nicole Jean Turner          March 2020 

Winner of the 2019 UWA Poetry Contest, With Only Which She Could Carry is a collection of poems chronicling transient characters trying to establish lives in multiple spaces at the same time, existing everywhere and nowhere at once. The author invites you to read, consider, and imagine a life lived out of terminals, stations, and the ether. Consider the motions of a life pressed through these turnstiles and what shapes might be formed of you from it. Consider what you might take and leave behind.

The Drunk has Shot The Pilot and He's Flying Us Into The Ocean

J. Carpenter          Summer 2020

The Drunk Has Shot the Pilot is a collection of poems selected from J. Carpenter's first three works: Things We Lost, Religion, and The Great American Relapse. Chosen for their raw grind through themes of sobriety, love, and loss, Carpenter accounts in his own distinct way what it means to be human. These poems were written as a means of self exploration, acceptance, and healing. The provocative array of subject matter selected from those books and republished in this collection that grabs you by the collar and demands the readers attention

The Best F-ING Poets You've Never Heard Of 

June 2019

"The Best F-Ing Poets were a much needed shock to my system. I also used it to clean the carburetors and keep the gas from sludging up in my bike over the winter. If you're looking for the same old boring shit, don't read this book." 

- Poet Laureate of Portsmouth, NH, Mike Nelson

Essential
