Reproductive Choices Poetry Anthology

Dear Friends–So much sound and fury is spent on the politics of controlling the bodies of others. This is a timely book, coming out before the elections, that might make it possible for some actual listening to real people dealing with complexities of being human. Please look for it when it comes out. I believe in the power of witnessing and sharing real stories. And if you feel moved and can, consider joining me to contribute to Anhinga Press for this project. I am honored they accepted one of my poems for the book.

Poems about Pregnancy, Abortions, & Choice”The day after Roe v Wade was overturned, I thought about what I could do. As a book designer/editor for Anhinga Press, I committed to creating a book of narrative poems about the experiences of women, and men, with preganancy, abortion, and choices.

    Interesting, Heather. Thank you for alerting me. I think I may owe you a phone call or at least an email. My life got upended the first day in Iceland when someone considerably larger than I essentially rear-ended me on some step and bumped me off into a hole. Thee result is a complicated fracture likely to take all fall to heal. We could certainly FaceTime, though, and I’d love to catch up. Let me know. Linda
