Announcing: Ariana Nadia Nash’s “Our Blood Is Singing”
Thanks to everyone who came out to the release of Jacob Russell’s “Chronic, Chronos, Kairos” this weekend in Philadelphia. (And thanks to our readers, Jacob, Paul and Ryan, who gave sly and feisty readings, all). If you missed the reading, and still want to pick up a copy of Jacob’s chapbook, the Kickstarter will be active for a few more weeks.
We’re pleased to announce our next project: Ariana Nadia Nash’s chapbook “Our Blood Is Singing.” Ariana’s chapbook is a sustained meditation on motherhood, loss and sexuality. She moves through traditional and open forms with virtuosity and delicacy. We’re excited to be working with her. We’ll release the book in a small run, in mid-Summer, in New York. Check below the jump for Ariana’s bio — more details soon!
Ariana Nadia Nash is the winner of the 2011 Philip Levine Prize in Poetry for her manuscript, Instructions for Preparing Your Skin, which is forthcoming from Anhinga Press. She is also the recipient of a Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Prize. She earned her MFA in creative writing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and spent the fall of 2011 in residency at The MacDowell Colony. Her work can be found in The Cafe Review, Rock & Sling and Main Street Rag, and is forthcoming from The Mom Egg.
