Climbing Lightly Through Forests is OUT today!

Today, the long-awaited poetry anthology I co-edited with Lisa M. Bradley is out from Aqueduct Press: Climbing Lightly through Forests: A Poetry Anthology Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin. It contains the work of many amazing poets, and you can take a look at the full table of contents in this post. You can also read a 17-page sample of the book on our publisher’s website.

You can get the book directly from Aqueduct. You can also get the physical copy of the book, as well as the ebook, on Amazon (heads up: this is an affiliate link, and I might get a tiny kickback if you buy the book through this link).

This book is a labor of love, and we are so proud of how it came out. It’s a beautiful object full of heartfelt and powerful and delicate and fierce poetry in honor of Le Guin — one of our field’s dearest, most profound voices. I hope you give it a look.
