      Laurel

      Poems of Love, Loss and Rivalry

      by Peter Cowlm

      A sequence of poems whose terrain is love, loss and lovers’ rivalries. ‘His poems have an epic feel…painting vivid pictures with the fewest words possible. This new collection gathers together threads of irony, self-deprecating nostalgia, and linguistic playfulness in one powerful skein of sharp, imagistic one-liners.’ Jane Holland, author of Disreputable ‘His spare poems brilliantly unfold an inner landscape on a complex journey of the heart that feels both personal and universal.’ Rachel Blum, author of The Doctor of Flowers ‘I am reminded of T. E. Hulme’s imagist poems I discovered as a teenager through Herbert Read’s The True Voice of Feeling. Laurel is a distillation of mood, atmosphere, feeling, expressed in a direct and surprising way, with the infinite – sky, sea, moon, sun – brought close to us and homely.’ Garry O’Connor, author of The Vagabond Lover The wholefrangible cosmos is this focusof indifference here on this empty bench where sometimes we sat.

      Song of Raven

      by Katerina Naumenko

      Long poem-story illustrated by author, nine colored-pencil images inside ranging from 1/3 to full page in size. Blurb for the back cover:Have you ever dreamt of high adventure?Has your soul unendingly ripped at its reigns - To defend your truth with light and rapture,And serve others truly without gains?Oh dear stranger, the story now before you,Let me tell with innocence of youth;Of a maid, both brave and noble,Serving others well, and serving truth.Let the stamping hooves, like drum-roll beating,Hold your place, as your soul takes flight,To delight in marvels, and …some battles,Both in the field, and youth’s fair trials of right.

      Real Dreams Really Make a Difference

      by Martha Cinader

      From ancient history to near-modern times, this collection of short stories and poetry is about fascinating people in history who followed their dreams and changed the world. The repertoire was developed in performance in clubs, schools, libraries, jazz festivals and at the International Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Included are stories about Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Josephine Baker, Queen Boedicea, Sacajawea and more. Described as "a hip beatnick Sesame Street for grownups," the stories are engaging for middle schoolers and up, and would appeal to teachers and librarians for their educational and entertainment value. The collection would also lend itself to adaptation for an educational animated TV series. Martha would like to see the life of this repertoire of biographical stories be extended to other mediums through licensing and permissions opportunities. For a more detailed description please see the Supporting Information PDF.

      Silent Screams

      Into and Out of Bulimia Through Poetry

      by Lori Henry

      Countless young women around the world feel badly about their bodies and wish they were thinner. Millions of them develop eating disorders in their quest to lose “just 5 more pounds.” Delve into the mindset of someone in the throws of bulimia who holds nothing back. Experience her ups and downs, triumphs and setbacks, all mirroring the experiences of those who struggle with this illness. Lori Henry went through the roller coaster ride of bulimia from age 12 until she graduated from high school. This collection of poetry was written during that time and in the years of recovery that followed. Silent Screams was written by a teenager overcome with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Her only way to express herself was through poetry and the poems in this book are a raw and powerful example of what it feels like to be young and in pain. The author has spoken about the book and her experience with bulimia in classrooms, youth groups, girls-only groups, dance conventions, libraries and at special events in order to encourage those struggling to seek help and begin recovery. Book Details: This is a book of poetry for young adults. The target market is teenagers who are struggling with an eating disorder (in particular, bulimia), but also anorexia, compulsive overeating, and EDNOS (eating disorders not otherwise specified). Sales have been mostly to teenaged girls who are in the process of recovering or whose parents are trying to convince them to recover.
