Wake: Up to Poetry
Fall is finally here! Today in Winston-Salem is quite chilly, especially for my Florida blood. I’ve always associated fall with beginnings and fresh starts, like school starting, and a certain refreshing crispness in the air replacing the muggy summer heat that makes me feel like new things are around the corner. I can’t help but associate this fall with all the exciting stuff going on here on the Press, like The Essential Brendan Kennelly being printed and, of course, the Women’s Anthology Tour and the release of the Women’s Anthology. Both of these things have us all waiting in anticipation, especially for those of us who were here last year who spent so many hours working on putting together the Women’s Anthology. Autumn is my favorite season, and now I have even more reason to enjoy it!
