Praise for Letters to Joan:

“The shimmering poems in Letters to Joan seem caught between worlds, one filled with instructions and imperatives, the other incantatory and strange. Or maybe both of these worlds are only, always, one? Because maybe there’s no difference between the word and the world? Allison Blevins thinks so, and sings so, her yummy new poems bright with love, and strung together with hope.”

–Alan Michael Parker, Author of The Ladder and Long Division


“Allison Blevins’ ekphrastic poems pay homage to Joan Mitchell, the mid-century American Abstract Expressionist painter. Individually the poems in Letters to Joan evoke a rich and complex world; together they sing celebrations and dirges of womanhood. Letters to Joan is a stunning chapbook.”

–Julie R. Enszer, Author of Avowed and editor of Sinister Wisdom
