“How Fate’s Confusion Connects” 

“How Fate’s Confusion Connects” is Teresa Edmond’s debut poetry collection. Using a variety of poetry forms such as free verse, couplets, cinquains, and Asian-style poetry, Edmond conveys moods throughout her book ranging from satirical and cynical to mellow and romantic. She also uses simple objects such as an hourglass, a glass of salted water, and a mask as metaphors to express her views of loneliness, broken relationships, and duplicity. Her book is divided into two parts. The first part includes poems written after Edmond graduated from college, while the second part includes poems written between the ages of eleven- and seventeen-years-old.

Fandemonium: Volume 2

What happens when you find yourself BURIED ALIVE? Sometimes it’s more dangerous to fear yourself than the Reaper.

In January 2012, Outskirts Press invited the Facebook community to submit for free poems, short stories, recipes, anecdotes and excerpts to Outskirts Press’s Facebook fan page. Facebook users were encouraged to like writings they liked most. The writings were then compiled to make Fandemonium: Volume 2, the second annual anthology.

Proceeds from the sale of Fandemonium: Volume 2 will go to the American Red Cross. 

So not only will you be purchasing a great collection of writings, but you will also contribute to a good cause!

Teresa’s poem “With All Reputations Intact” is a featured poem in this publication. To purchase the book, visit Outskirts Press’s “Fandemonium” page.

“Wawayanda Review” (Fall 2010)

The Fall 2010 issue of “Wawayanda Review” features my poem “An Education in Fame.” However, the poem was published under its original title, “The Golden Calf that is Fame.” The 54-page anthology was published by the Northeast Poetry Center in Warwick, NY. The book features a list of Hudson Valley poetry venues. This is the first ever “Wawayanda Review” published. Only individuals who participate in the College of Poetry workshops can submit their works created in the workshops to “”Wawayanda Review”. The “Wawayanda Review accepts submissions nationally, but most contributors are from the Hudson Valley, NY, area and nearby New Jersey. Many have been active in the readings and workshops of the College of Poetry.

Editors Robert Milby and Steve Hirsch say they have no preconceived stylistic preferences, but simply seek work that is new, powerful, and beautiful.
