Whether you’re trying to claw your way out of depression, are suffering from extreme heartbreak, or just enjoy reading disturbing writing, Holly Riordan’s first poetry collection will remind you that you’re not alone. That everyone has a darkness hidden inside of them that’s screaming to escape.
Salt Water is Brianna Wiest’s debut poetry book. Gracefully touching on the issues of self-awareness, wholeness and what it takes to reconcile with yourself, her prose artfully illustrates how healing helps us to actualize our latent potential and bring us into a greater awe for the universe that we are so irrevocably connected to.
Daniell Koepke is the author behind the Internal Acceptance Movement (I. A.M.). In her first poetry collection, Daniell gives voice to the fear and anxiety, as well as the perseverance and strength, that has been fundamental to her own personal growth journey and the path to deeper and more meaningful self-love and acceptance. In her own words, this book is for “the 17-year-old Daniell who was convinced she was worthless; who was convinced she would never survive or amount to anything. This is for the friends and family who never stopped believing in and supporting her. This is for all the people who feel that they have to shrink and hide who they are in order to be loved and accepted and worth something. This is for anyone who needs a reminder that you deserve to take up space in the world and that you are enough.”

In her third poetry collection, Ari Eastman takes us through a very personal journey of growing up, loss, love, and surviving it all. This book is a must read for anyone who has experienced tremendous grief. Eastman has put together a book that not only exposes the bruises so many of us face, but also one that kisses those same sore spots. Heartbreaking, brutally honest, and surprisingly hopeful,
