Back in February of this year, I was invited by the editor of this book to join a group of poets in creating a collection of poetry that describes the range of emotions humans go through when faced with trauma, be it physical or emotional or both.
I jumped at the chance and discussed my feelings on being invited on my other blog with a post titled Those “Oh, Wow!” Moments.
Beyond The Dark Room: An International Collection of Transformative Poetry was published on August 27th. Each chapter’s poems deal with an emotion or state of being in dealing with and recovering from a traumatic experience. Some of the chapters are Anger, Depression, Calm, and Trust.
The book is available from Amazon.com and the royalties go to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)/Doctors Without Borders.
