The Knoxville Writers’ Guild Poetry Group is delighted to announce their first chapbook, Bleeding Hearts: A Sampling of Poems from the Poetry Workshop of the Knoxville Writers’ Guild published by Tellico Books, owned by Guild member Bob Cumming.
Edited by Cathy Kodra and Scott Savage, this 72-page anthology contains 48 poems written by 16 Guild members of the poetry group within the Guild. The book is designed by Beto Cumming, also a Guild member.
Scott Savage writes in the Preface about the group: “And just as the alchemy of earth is plowing, weeding, and watering, ours is the alchemy of words–deleting, inserting, and arranging–until something grows as beautiful as a stem of red flowers.”
The poets in Bleeding Hearts include: Cathy Kodra, Beto Cumming, Bob Cumming, Cat D-Arcy, Peggy Douglas, Judith Duvall, Ruth Faulkner Grubbs, Vickie M. Jordan, Austin Kodra, Phil Lowe, John C. Mannone, Jo Ann Pantanizopoulos, Scott Savage, Jenny Weisent, J.A. Wilkins, and Martha Davies Yarnell.
This anthology can be purchased from any of the published poets in Bleeding Hearts. It will also be available for purchase online from http://www.tellicobooks.com soon. Guild members: $10. Non-members: $12.
