Andrea Witzke Slot, our new book reviews editor starting in fall 2012, has recently published a book of poems titled To find a new beauty. The book has spent time on both Amazon’s Hot New Releases in Poetry and Amazon’s Hot New Releases in General. We encourage everyone to support Andrea and help her book continue to make waves!
Andrea’s work has appeared in Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review, Translation Review, Pacific Review, Southern Women’s Review, and Chiron Review, among other print and online journals. She teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago and is also on the editorial board of Rhino Poetry. To find a new beauty borrows its title from a line of H.D.’s and has been described by Marge Piercy as being “rich with cool, intelligent, and carefully crafted poems that often have a subtext of terror and darkness.”
