Writing the Self-Elegy, Kara Dorris, editor. Link to pre-order. Writing the Self-Elegy |

“In this anthology, poets mourn the selves they used to be or never became. While some interrogate and confront, others introspect and reflect on those lost selves. Whether it's a memorialized moment or a choice that pivoted a life, each of these voices is listening to the past and speaking back to it.”

-Traci Brimhall, author of Come the Slumberless to the Land of Nod
