Red Savina Review is proud to announce the recent publication of Co-founder/Poetry Editor Wendy Gist’s chapbook, Moods of the Dream Fog, from Finishing Line Press. The chapbook is now available on amazon.com.
“Wendy Gist’s new chapbook is a celebration of the body and the spirit it comprises; physical, brutal, earthy, elegant. Her poetry speaks to the transformative power of love and language, and love in language that propels Moods of the Dream Fog forward.”
–Chris Campanioni, Poet, recipient of the Academy of American Poets Prize, Professor of English literature and creative writing at Baruch College, John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Pace University.
Congratulations to Red Savina Review Poetry Contributor Ana Maria Caballero. Her chapbook “mid-life” is now available for pre-sale at Finishing Line Press. Reserve your copy today here.
Ana Maria Caballero’s new collection is a celebration of diminishing innocence and growing wisdom that is indicative of mid-life. Touching upon tenderness, motherhood, anguish and partnership, these poems are as rhythmic as the moods of a newborn child. Caballero shares the ebb and flow of a meaningful writing life. She is a poet that bestows upon the reader “the notion of marriage, of children, of daily love.” Indeed, a fine read.
–Wendy Gist author of Moods of the Dream Fog
