New Poems & New Book!

It is with great excitement that I am announcing my next chapbook: Down to the Bone: Poetry for a Post-Roe World

Down to the Bone has just been named the winner of the
Poetry Mesa Chapbook Contest and will be published this year
by Wild Rising Press. I am so grateful to internationally renowned authors Judyth Hill and Catherine Marenghi for selecting my writing!

My first reading of poems from Down to the Bone will be a Zoom event, hosted by the incredible Judyth Hill, on March 27. This evening of poetry will also feature readings by the five wonderful finalists of the Poetry Mesa contest—Julie K. Shavin, Gianina Nold, Kelly Watt, Rae Taylor, and William Considine. Stay tuned for registration details.


While you wait for the release of Down to the Bone, please enjoy this selection of my recently published work:

  • My poem about Frida Kahlo, “El Miembro Marchito (The Withered Limb),” is now available online at South Broadway Ghost Society. Many thanks to the editors for their continued support!
  • Five of my poems are online at the Colorado Poets Center. Beth Franklin has been carrying on the work of her late husband, Bob King, in continuing this Colorado poetry resource.
  • Five poems have been published in Jasper’s Folly: Issue One, a beautiful anthology of full-color art and poetry. You can catch a sneak peak of one of my poems, “Like Fish,” HERE.
  • My poem “Woman, Unmasking” will be published February 23rd in Spit Poet Zine Volume 13: Actualize. Your can purchase the zine HERE—every order includes stickers!

I can’t wait to report back with more dates and details about my future chapbook. Thank you, poetry community!

  1. Congratulations, Amy! (I meant to reply last week!) “Wild Rising Press” sounds perfect for you!

    And having Judyth Hill host your Zoom reading is so perfect! (Maybe that’s enough exclamation points.)
