Sample Text




"I'm amazed by When I say I believe women.... It feels so new and necessary." (Lisa Robertson)

"There is an urgency in Emily Critchley's poetry that puts me in way of Rich and Grahn among many other poetic foremothers' which is unique and unafraid, with a serious cutting edge, in a time of great ineptitude, which challenges to be tempered." (Susana Gardner)
