I confess, I’m pretty excited about today. Not only is it #WomanWritersWednesday, but we’re only a few days away from announcing our chapbook contest winners!
What better day, then, to celebrate this year’s phenomenal judge, Mary Ann McFadden? She’s not just a gifted poet; she’s a devoted and enthusiastic advocate for women’s poetry, and a proud supporter of QuillsEdge Press. If you’re in need of a good dose of strong poetry, check out this wonderful post from her website, featuring three of her poems – “After the Crash, the Old Fool Does Laundry,” “To Break It To Find It Again,” and “To the Lizard God.”
All three poems are featured in Mary Ann’s book, Devil, Dear (Alice James Books, 2014). Check it out – we think it may find a welcome place on your shelves of poetry by badass women.
Our wholehearted thanks to Mary Ann for her gracious and dedicated judging of our contest! ♥
