Lingering in the Margins
Sunday, 9-29-2019 2 to 4 p.m. The editors of Lingering in the Margins: A River City Poets Anthology discuss the creative process and publication of their recently released anthology published by Chop Suey Books. Readings by eight contributors. The book grew from three women’s love of poetry. Their humble idea was to offer an opportunity for fledgling poets in their community to be published. Two years and two hundred poetry submissions later, Lingering in the Margins represents the unique voice of over 50 poets, both new and experienced.
