“These poems are full of pain, humor, and guts. I wish this was required reading when I was in school.”               -America Ferrara


I am one of the editors of the Courage Anthology, poems for teenage girls available from Write Bloody Publishing.

Some of the stunning poets you’ll find in Courage:

Patricia Smith, Dorianne Laux, Andrea Gibson, Amber Tamblyn, Aracelis Girmay, Sarah Kay, Rachel McKibbens, Mindy Nettifee, Tara Hardy, Sara Brickman, Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, Daphne Gottlieb, Aimee Nezhukumatathil and so many more!

Courage feels like the cool older woman who sits her little sister down, stares her straight in the eye, and gives her the kind of blunt, funny, rude advice that will forever alter the course of her life.” The Stranger

Put this book in the hands of someone who needs it and watch them fall in love.” The Stranger

“This will be a book I place in my daughter’s hand and peek into while she sleeps to discover which dog-eared page has spoken to her heart.” –The Poetry Question
