Review of PACKING by Hailey Higdon

"From publishing collective Bloof Books comes Hailey Higdon’s Packing, a small chapbook produced in a numbered edition of one hundred copies. […]

"Higdon’s poems almost have the quality of what Andrew Suknaski called “loping, coyote lines,” composing long, conversational lines that extend out against and over the horizon. Higdon composes sweeping poems that set entire scenes and scenarios, conversationally writing observations and monologues in an intriguing exploration of voice. […]

"There are entire worlds hidden and buried deep within the poems of Hailey Higdon." —Rob McLennan

And there are a few (very few!) copies left here.

Submissions are now closed

Thanks! We can't wait to start reading these.

By rough count, we received approximately 150 entries. As determined by first names, the gender distribution is 55% female and 45% male.

We also had a couple of withdrawals for chapbooks that were accepted elsewhere. (Hearty congratulations to those poets!) Those were not included in the count, but would not have changed the percentages.
