The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the release of Joy in the Tomb of Hunting and Fishing by Craig McVay of Columbus, Ohio

Reviewers thoughts on Joy in the Tomb of Hunting and Fishing

“From the women of classical mythology to the ironic eyes of a prison teacher to the contemplative ruminations of farm families, McVay’s poems apply a magnifying glass to the losses—of family, culture, connection—that come with the passage of time…In a collection that gives equal tine to melancholy and acceptance, McVay’s matter-of-fact tone suggests that, no matter what, we must carry on.
-Steve Abbott: author of A Green Line Between Green Fields and A Language the Image Speaks

Midnight Exhibition at the Wheatgrass Saloon
by
Elizabeth Chapman of Palo Alto, California

A remarkable collection of poems that engage the reader in the mind and in the heart and, ultimately, in the soul.
"Elizabeth Chapman's most recent collection is a love story between two accomplished artists, one a poet and the other a painter... in this volume we hear the voice of someone who has known suffering, has felt deeply, and has a keen appetite for life."
-Francis Murphy, Professor of English, Emeritus, Smith College

The Orchard Street Press is pleased to announce the publication of Passages, an exceptional collection of poems by Linda M. Fischer of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania.

These poems cast a keen and attentive eye to the joy and grief of living, exploring them both with depth and grace. As she does, Fischer asserts the resurgence of life with fresh, vivid language. Nature speaks to her, and, through these poems, it speaks to us as well, telling us of joy and pain, and, ultimately, of peace.

Drawn from the entries from The Press’ first annual Poetry Contest, Quiet Diamonds, 2018 consists of forty-four poems from thirty-three poets. Diane Kendig, professor, poet, and author, says of the collection: “Quiet   Diamonds reminded me that the Greek origin of the word ‘anthology’ meant “a collection of flowers,” because the poems here are as varied as those in a botanical garden, as long-lasting, and bright as diamonds. Breathe and read deeply here.”

Shelby Stephenson, for Poet Laureate of North Carolina says: “Bill Griffin’s collection flows and grows with ease into more runs and swings as Nature makes its call, whether thrush or granite, seedling of shadow. Riverstory : Treestory is one special book, a hymn to growing things—and love, the soul awakening to join the self, singing with bird, mountain, and leaf.” Poet Pat Riviere-Seel notes: The reader may let go, but these poems will remain with you, a part of a larger story.”
