Shelly Taylor


Shelly Taylor, 1718’s own faculty advisor, read for us on February 4th. She read from her newest poetry collection, Lions, Remonstrance, which is available for pre-order at Coconut Books. We were lucky to have this  preview of her new book. Look below for one of her poems from the collection.

Since Lions, Remonstrance is not yet available, Maple Street Books  sold copies of Shelly’s first collection, Black-Eyed Heifer, (Tarpaulin Sky Press, May 2010). Keep a look out for Hick Poetics, an anthology of contemporary American rural poetries that Shelly co-edited with Abraham Smith; it will be released this year from Lost Roads Press.
