The Best Of Write Bloody Anthology
Edited by Derrick C. Brown
A little bit of poetry and a little bit of rock and roll.
Write Bloody Publishing is a unique poetry press started in 2004 by traveling poet, musician, comedian, magician and former paratrooper, Derrick C. Brown.
After spending the mid 1990s and early 2000s book touring throughout Europe and the U.S., Brown realized the untapped potential in the contemporary poetry market for authors who were hitting the road reading in bars, theaters and clubs. Authors had to learn the art of building fan-bases by putting on entertaining readings. Their work also had to sing on the page. The road rambling poet was brought back to life.
Within these 250 pages are road stories, tour posters and photos as well as the best poems the press has put out in the last few decades. From Clint Smith to Andrea Gibson and Sarah Kay, Write Bloody has paved the way for generations of poets to come.

Every Little Vanishing
By Sheleen McElhinney
Every Little Vanishing is, at its core, a collection of poetry that will bring you to your knees with its honesty. These poems drag you to the darkroom of vulnerability where everything is exposed; the wounded child, the wreckless adolescent, the life and death of a sibling to addiction, and the loss of self through marriage and motherhood. These poems should beneath their hard exterior the soft underbelly of what it means to love and lose. They are for anyone who wants to learn how to grow a new skin, to excavate the body of its grief, to devourit, and to let it choke you.
