Sinew: 10 Years of Poetry in the Brew

It’s our 10th anniversary and we’re having a book about it!

We’re elated to announce our first poetry collection coming August 24th. Sinew explores the theme of the body through the viewpoints of 76 poets who delve into inner realms to expose tender, brazen truths. Henry L. Jones, Jo Collins, and Christine Hall edited Sinew with the invaluable insights of Matt Johnstone and Lance Umenhofer at publisher April Gloaming. This stunning cover is by AG graphic artist Drew Holden.
