HICK POETICS

Edited by Shelly Taylor and Abraham Smith

HICK PO is an anthology of contemporary rural American poetry edited by Shelly Taylor and Abraham Smith.  This project was officially released in early 2015.

This anthology offers up forty poets, from the globally famed to the emerging, each of whom have been or are now fast-tied to the countryside.  Let us sing to you of this age-old tradition so well we know the woodline.

This book will feature not only poems but also aesthetic statements speaking towards our writers’ relationships with the liminal, the rural, the great American wilds.
