A Lightness, A Thirst, or Nothing At All


I'm so happy to share the news that a publication date of  December 7, 2014 has been set for my new book, a collection of 53 prose poems! The book is already available for generously discounted pre-orders at Amazon.com and is up on my publisher's website Welcome Rain Publishers.

After taking this holiday weekend off (4th of July weekend), I'm going to begin the process of final tweaking and editing. So ... I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, here in the U.S. and abroad, and there will be a new prompt for you next Saturday.

Here's the book trailer!



From the Publisher's Website

"Intensely focused, compressed, and sharp-edged, these prose poems by Adele Kenny take the spiritual journey into heightened awareness of experience, place, and identity. Deliberate fragments, the language of dreams, and an occasional nod to the surreal combine with Kenny’s signature elements of striking imagery, lyrical precision, and compelling immediacy to inform an enhanced vision of the ways in which the interior life intersects with the outside world. These poems startle, surprise, and tell us things about ourselves that we didn’t know."

ISBN: 9781566493963
