Kelly Morse (Poetry ’12) recently shared that her chapbook, Heavy Light, will be published by Two of Cups Press in spring 2016!
Kelly says, “Heavy Light focuses on the ambivalence nested within motherhood, the trauma and strange joy of it.” Above is a photo of Kelly and her daughter, which we thought fitting for this great news!
Poems from Heavy Light have been published or are forthcoming in Gulf Coast, The Journal, Riverteeth, and Tinderbox. One of the poems, “Dar la luz,” was a finalist for Mid American Review‘s Fineline Prize, and will be published in their next issue.
Warm congratulations, Kelly, and we’re looking forward to reading your poems this spring!
